APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP sites hold their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content which has to be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the site visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the web server for each and every page that is loaded. While this can't be avoided for sites with constantly changing content, there are various Internet sites that have the very same content on a number of of their webpages all the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etcetera. APC is extremely useful for such Internet sites since it caches the already compiled code and shows it each time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only minimize the server load, but it'll also increase the speed of any Internet site many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting

You can use APC for your web apps with all of the cloud web hosting packages that we offer as it is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform. Turning it on will take only a single click in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our shared plans and a few minutes later it will start caching the program code of your software applications. Our platform is quite flexible, so you will be able to use several configurations depending on the system requirements of your scripts. For example, you could activate APC for a couple of releases of PHP for the entire account and select the version that each site can use, or you can have the very same version of PHP, but activate or deactivate APC just for specific sites. You can do this by placing a php.ini file with a line of program code in the domain or subdomain folder where you require the custom setup.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated server solutions as it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you wish to use this module, you'll be able to activate it with a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational within a few minutes. Since you may want to use some other web accelerators for selected websites, our advanced platform will permit you to personalize the software environment inside your account. You will be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it just for some Internet sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based Internet site could work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can function without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you could run Internet sites with different requirements inside the exact same account.
