APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP Internet sites keep their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that needs to be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the website visitor. All these actions need some processing time and include reading and writing on the server for each page that is opened. While this can't be avoided for websites with regularly changing content, there are numerous websites that have the same content on many of their webpages constantly - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etc. APC is quite useful for this kind of sites because it caches the previously compiled code and displays it each time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this reduce the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any website several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, so you'll be able to use it for your applications irrespective of the hosting plan that you choose when you sign up. The module can be enabled from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to maintain the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it'll speed up your websites since it'll start caching their program code. If you want to run websites with different system requirements or use specific web accelerators for some of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. In this way, you can enable or disable APC not only for a specific Internet site without affecting the other Internet sites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP as our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting plans since it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. If you would like to use this module, you will be able to activate it with a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional in a couple of minutes. As you may want to use some other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our outstanding platform will allow you to personalize the software environment in your account. You can activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some Internet sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based site can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you could run websites with various requirements from the exact same account.
