APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP sites store their content in a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content that has to be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the site visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and involve reading and writing on the hosting server for every single page which is accessed. While this can't be avoided for sites with constantly changing content material, there are numerous Internet sites which present the same content on a lot of of their pages constantly - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etcetera. APC is exceptionally useful for this type of websites since it caches the previously compiled code and displays it every time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only decrease the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any Internet site a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

APC is provided with each shared hosting plan that we offer and you could activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your applications. A few minutes later the framework will be working and you will notice the quicker loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. Since we offer different releases of PHP that could also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP in the very same account. Our high tech cloud Internet hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so if you use a different web accelerator for any website and it disrupts APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a particular site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is installed on the amazing cloud hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are made, so you will be able to employ it whatever the plan you pick. Activating the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a click, so you will not need any skills or prior experience in order to take full advantage of it. As you'll be able to employ several versions of PHP at once, you will be able to customize the software environment for every single site you host in the account if needed. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will enable you to set what version of PHP this specific site will use and if APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account in general, so you could run different scripts and employ various web accelerators for websites which are in the same account.
