APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP sites keep their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content that needs to be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and involve reading and writing on the hosting server for each page that is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content material, there're many Internet sites that present the same content on a number of of their pages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, and many others. APC is extremely useful for this kind of Internet sites since it caches the previously compiled code and shows it whenever visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only reduce the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any Internet site several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

APC is provided with each and every hosting plan that we offer and you can activate it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your web applications. A few minutes later the framework will be active and you will notice the quicker loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we provide different versions of PHP that could also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP in the very same account. Our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform is very adaptable, so if you use some other web accelerator for any website and it disturbs APC, you could activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a specific site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can take full advantage of APC with all our semi-dedicated server packages and activating this framework is done with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you don't have any previous experience, you will be able to use it to accelerate your websites. As the cloud hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are made supports multiple PHP versions, you'll have freedom with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you can employ. It will take you just a click to activate APC for one or several PHP versions and by using a php.ini file in 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 version will be used and whether APC has to be enabled or not. In this way, one site could use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, while another one can use some other accelerator and PHP 5.5.
