APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP websites save their content in a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content which has to be shown is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the visitor. All these actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the server for each page which is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content, there are numerous sites that offer the exact same content on a lot of of their webpages all the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, and many others. APC is really useful for such Internet sites as it caches the previously compiled code and displays it when visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. Not only will this decrease the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any site a few times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, so you'll be able to use it for your applications regardless of the shared website hosting plan that you pick when you sign up. The module can be activated from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to handle the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it'll boost your websites as it will begin caching their code. If you would like to run Internet sites with different system requirements or take advantage of different web accelerators for some of them, you could customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a particular Internet site without affecting the remaining websites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP as our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting solutions because it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account shall be created. If you want to use this module, you'll be able to enable it with a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional in a couple of minutes.

For instance, a Drupal-based website can work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can function without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do that is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you could run sites with different requirements from the very same account.
