APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP websites hold their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content that should be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the website visitor. These actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the hosting server for every single page which is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for websites with regularly changing content material, there're many sites that present the very same content on many of their pages constantly - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etc. APC is exceptionally useful for this type of sites because it caches the previously compiled code and shows it whenever visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this greatly reduce the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any site many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, therefore you can use it for your web applications irrespective of the website hosting plan that you select when you register. The module can be activated from the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to control the shared accounts and only a few minutes later it'll speed up your websites as it'll begin caching their code. If you would like to run websites with different system requirements or employ different web accelerators for some of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not just for a particular Internet site without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is installed on the innovative cloud hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are created, so you will be able to use it whatever the plan you select. Enabling the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a mouse click, so you won't need any skills or earlier experience in order to take advantage of it. As you'll be able to use several releases of PHP at the same time, you will be able to modify the software environment for every single Internet site that you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what version of PHP this specific site will use and if APC needs to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account in general, so you could run various scripts and take advantage of different web accelerators for sites that are in the same account.
