APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP websites hold their content inside a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content that needs to be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the visitor. All these actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the hosting server for every single page that is opened. While this can't be avoided for websites with constantly changing content material, there're a lot of websites that feature the same content on a lot of of their webpages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etc. APC is very useful for this kind of sites as it caches the already compiled code and shows it any time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. Not only will this lower the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any site a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting

APC is available with every single shared website hosting package that we offer and you could enable it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your web applications. Several minutes later the framework will be active and you will experience the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we provide different releases of PHP that can also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP within the very same account. Our high tech cloud web hosting platform is extremely flexible, so if you use another web accelerator for any Internet site and it interferes with APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a specific site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is installed on the amazing cloud hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are made, so you could use it regardless of the package you select. Enabling the module is done through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a click, so you won't need any skills or previous experience to take full advantage of it. Since you will be able to use different releases of PHP at once, you will be able to customize the software environment for each website you host in the account if needed. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will permit you to set what version of PHP this site will use and if APC needs to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account as a whole, so you could run different scripts and employ different web accelerators for Internet sites which are in the same account.
