APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP sites store their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content which needs to be viewed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the site visitor. These actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the hosting server for each page that is accessed. While this can't be avoided for websites with constantly changing content, there are many websites that offer the exact same content on a number of of their pages at all times - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, and many others. APC is extremely useful for this type of sites since it caches the already compiled code and displays it every time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled all over again. This will not only reduce the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any Internet site several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

APC is available with each hosting solution that we offer and you could activate it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you want to use it for your web apps. A couple of minutes later the framework will be active and you will experience the considerably quicker loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. Since we provide several versions of PHP which could also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP within the same account. Our advanced cloud web hosting platform is very flexible, so in case you use some other web accelerator for any Internet site and it interferes with APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a particular site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is installed on the innovative cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are made, so you could employ it irrespective of the plan you pick. Enabling the module is performed through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a click, so you will not need any skills or prior experience to take full advantage of it. As you will be able to use several versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll be able to customize the software environment for every single website you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with a couple of lines in it placed in a domain folder will permit you to set what release of PHP this particular Internet site will use and whether APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account as a whole, so you can run different scripts and use various web accelerators for Internet sites which are in the same account.
