APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites store their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content that has to be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the website visitor. These actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the server for each page which is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content, there are a lot of sites that present the very same content on a number of of their webpages at all times - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etcetera. APC is extremely useful for such Internet sites because it caches the already compiled code and shows it every time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. Not only will this decrease the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any Internet site a few times.

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting solutions because it is pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. If you would like to use this module, you can enable it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational in a few minutes. As you may need to use alternative web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our leading-edge platform will enable you to personalize the software environment in your account.

For example, a Drupal-based site could work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website could work without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the latter is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you will be able to run Internet sites with different requirements from the same account.
