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 that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content that has to be viewed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the website visitor. These actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the hosting server for every single page that is accessed. While this cannot be avoided for websites with constantly changing content material, there're a lot of Internet sites which offer the same content on a lot of of their webpages all the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etc. APC is very useful for this kind of websites because it caches the already compiled code and displays it whenever visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled all over again. This will not only greatly reduce the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any Internet site many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting

You can use APC with each web hosting package that we offer since it is already set up on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. As our system is extremely flexible, you'll be able to run Internet sites with different requirements and decide whether they will work with APC or not. For example, you could activate APC only for one version of PHP or you could do this for several of the releases running on the platform. You may also decide if all sites using a given PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be enabled only for selected sites and not for all sites in the website hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful if you'd like to employ a different web accelerator for several of your Internet sites. These customizations are carried out with ease by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is installed on the innovative cloud hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are made, so you will be able to employ it irrespective of the package you choose. Enabling the module is done through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a click, so you will not need any skills or previous experience in order to take advantage of it. Since you will be able to employ different versions of PHP simultaneously, you will be able to modify the software environment for every single website you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with several 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 has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account as a whole, so you could run various scripts and employ various web accelerators for sites that are in the same account.
