APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP websites save their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content which has to be viewed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the server for each page that is opened. While this cannot be avoided for websites with regularly changing content material, there're numerous Internet sites which feature the very same content on many of their webpages at all times - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, and many others. APC is quite useful for this kind of websites because it caches the already compiled code and displays it every time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only greatly reduce the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any site many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our advanced cloud platform, therefore you will be able to use it for your applications irrespective of the cloud web hosting package that you choose when you register. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to control the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it will boost your websites because it will start caching their code. If you wish to run Internet sites with different system requirements or employ different web accelerators for any of them, you can customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not just for a particular website without affecting the other sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is installed on the state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created, so you will be able to employ it irrespective of the package you pick. Enabling the module is done through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a click, so you won't need any skills or earlier experience to take full advantage of it. As you will be able to employ different releases of PHP simultaneously, you could customize the software environment for each 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 enable you to set what version of PHP this Internet 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 take advantage of different web accelerators for Internet sites which are in the same account.
