APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP sites keep their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content which should be viewed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the website visitor. These actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the hosting server for each and every page that is accessed. While this can't be avoided for websites with regularly changing content material, there're many websites which offer the very same content on a number of of their webpages constantly - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etcetera. APC is really useful for this kind of websites because it caches the already compiled code and shows it each time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this decrease the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any site several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, which means that you'll be able to use it for your web applications regardless of the website hosting plan that you select when you join us. The module can be activated from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it'll boost your sites as it will start caching their code. In case you need to run sites with different system requirements or use different web accelerators for some of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. In this way, you could enable or disable APC not just for a particular site without affecting the remaining sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP as our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use APC with our semi-dedicated hosting plans and activating the framework is done with a mouse click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, so even if you don't have any previous experience, you can use it in order to accelerate your Internet sites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are set up supports multiple PHP releases, you'll have freedom with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you will be able to employ. It will take you just a click to activate APC for one or several PHP releases and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are different from the ones for the account in general, you could set what PHP release will be used and whether APC needs to be allowed or not. This way, one website may use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, while another one may use some other accelerator and PHP 5.5.
