APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP sites store their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content which has to be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the site visitor. These actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the hosting server for each page which is opened. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content material, there are many websites which offer the very same content on a number of of their pages at all times - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etc. APC is exceptionally useful for this kind of sites because 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 all over again. This will not only greatly reduce the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any website a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, which means that you will be able to use it for your applications irrespective of the shared web hosting solution that you choose when you sign up. The module can be activated from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to maintain the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it will speed up your sites because it'll begin caching their code. If you want to run Internet sites with various system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for any of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. In this way, you could enable or disable APC not only for a specific site without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP as our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is set up on the amazing cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are created, so you'll be able to use it regardless of the plan you pick. Enabling the module is performed from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a mouse click, so you won't need any skills or previous experience to be able to take full advantage of it. As you will be able to use several releases of PHP simultaneously, you'll be able to customize the software environment for each site which you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will enable you to set what release of PHP this particular site will use and if APC needs to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account in general, so you can run various scripts and use various web accelerators for sites that are in the same account.
