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 inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content which should be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the site visitor. These actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the hosting server for every single page which is accessed. While this can't be avoided for sites with regularly changing content material, there're a lot of websites that have the very same content on many of their pages constantly - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etcetera. APC is very useful for this kind of sites because it caches the previously compiled code and shows it every time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this reduce the server load, but it'll also increase the speed of any site a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

APC is provided with each website hosting plan that we offer and you could enable it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you want to use it for your web apps. A few minutes later the framework will be working and you'll experience the faster loading speed of your database-driven sites. Since we offer different versions of PHP which can also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP inside the very same account. Our state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform is very adaptable, so in case you use another web accelerator for any website and it interferes with APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a selected site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is set up on the state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created, so you could employ it whatever the plan you get. Enabling the module is performed through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a click, so you won't need any skills or prior experience to be able to take advantage of it. As you'll be able to work with several releases of PHP concurrently, you will be able to customize the software environment for each and every website you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with a couple of 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 should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account as a whole, so you can run various scripts and employ various web accelerators for Internet sites which are in the same account.
