APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP sites hold their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content that needs to be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the visitor. These actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the server for each page that is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for websites with constantly changing content material, there are numerous sites which feature the exact same content on a lot of of their pages constantly - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is quite useful for this kind of Internet sites as it caches the previously compiled code and displays it each time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only greatly reduce the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any Internet site several times.

You can take advantage of APC with our semi-dedicated server packages and activating the framework is done with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel, so even if you don't have any prior experience, you could use it to speed up your Internet sites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are created is compatible with multiple PHP releases, you will have flexibility with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you'll be able to use. It will take you just a click to enable APC for one or a couple of PHP versions and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings that are not the same as the ones for the account as a whole, you will be able to set what PHP release will be used and whether APC has to be allowed or not. This way, one site may use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, while another one may use some different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
