APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP sites save their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content that should be shown is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the visitor. These actions need some processing time and include reading and writing on the hosting server for each and every page which is opened. While this cannot be avoided for websites with regularly changing content, there are numerous sites which offer the exact same content on a number of of their pages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etcetera. APC is really useful for this kind of Internet sites as it caches the already compiled code and shows it whenever visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this lower the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any Internet site several times.

You can use APC with each shared hosting package that we offer as it's already present on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our system is extremely flexible, you can run sites with various requirements and decide whether they will use APC or not. For example, you could enable APC only for a single release of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the versions running on our platform. In addition, you can choose if all sites using a particular PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be active just for selected Internet sites and not for all websites in the web hosting account. The last option is useful if you want to employ a different web accelerator for several of your sites. These customizations are performed with ease by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.
