APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP Internet sites store their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content which should be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the visitor. All these actions need some processing time and include reading and writing on the server for every single page that is opened. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content material, there are many websites which present the very same content on a number of of their pages at all times - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etcetera. APC is really useful for such Internet sites since it caches the already compiled code and displays it any time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only lower the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any website a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, so you'll be able to use it for your web applications whatever the shared web hosting solution that you choose when you join us. The module can be activated through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to maintain the shared accounts and only a few minutes later it'll boost your websites since it will begin caching their program code. If you wish to run Internet sites with various system requirements or employ different web accelerators for some of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. Thus, you could enable or disable APC not only for a specific Internet site without affecting the remaining sites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP as our platform supports multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is installed on the innovative cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created, so you will be able to use it regardless of the package you select. Enabling the module is performed from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a mouse click, so you will not need any skills or earlier experience to be able to take full advantage of it. As you will be able to employ different releases of PHP concurrently, you'll be able to customize the software environment for each and every website which you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what release of PHP this website will use and if APC needs to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account in general, so you could run different scripts and employ various web accelerators for websites which are in the same account.
