APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP websites store their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content which has to be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the website visitor. All these actions need some processing time and include reading and writing on the server for each page which is opened. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content material, there are many sites that offer the exact same content on a lot of of their webpages all the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etcetera. APC is very useful for such websites since it caches the already compiled code and shows it whenever visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled all over again. This will not only lower the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any Internet site a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

APC is available with each and every website hosting solution that we offer and you could enable it with just a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your applications. Several minutes later the framework will be active and you will notice the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we provide different releases of PHP that can also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP in the same account. Our high tech cloud hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so if you use a different web accelerator for any website and it interferes with APC, you will 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 Hosting

You can take full advantage of APC with our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and activating the framework is performed with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you don't have any prior experience, you'll be able to use it in order to speed up your Internet sites. As the cloud hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are created supports multiple PHP versions, you'll have freedom with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you can use. It will take you only a click to activate APC for one or several PHP releases and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings that are different from the ones for the account in general, you can set what PHP release will be used and whether APC needs to be allowed or not. This way, one Internet site may use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, and another one may use some different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
