APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP websites hold their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content that should be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the website visitor. These actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the web server for each page which is loaded. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content material, there are a lot of Internet sites that feature the exact same content on a number of of their webpages at all times - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, and many others. APC is extremely useful for this kind of websites since it caches the previously compiled code and displays it every time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only lower the server load, but it will also increase the speed of any website many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, which means that you can use it for your applications regardless of the website hosting solution that you select when you sign up. The module can be activated through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it'll speed up your Internet sites as it'll start caching their code. In case you would like to run sites with various system requirements or use specific web accelerators for some of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. Thus, you could enable or disable APC not only for a particular Internet site without affecting the other sites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is installed on the innovative cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created, so you could employ it whatever the package you get. Enabling the module is performed through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a click, so you won't need any skills or prior experience to take advantage of it. Since you will be able to use different releases of PHP at the same time, you will be able to modify the software environment for each site 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 Internet site will use and if APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account as a whole, so you can run different scripts and take advantage of different web accelerators for Internet sites that are in the same account.
