APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP Internet sites hold their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content which has to be shown is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the website visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the web server for each and every page which is accessed. While this cannot be avoided for websites with regularly changing content material, there're various websites that have the same content on many of their pages all the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, and many others. APC is extremely useful for this kind of sites as it caches the already compiled code and displays it when visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. Not only will this lower the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any website a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

You will be able to use APC for your web apps with all of the website hosting plans that we provide as it's pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform. Turning it on will take just a click in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our shared solutions and a couple of minutes later it'll begin caching the code of your software apps. Our platform is rather flexible, so you'll be able to use several configurations depending on the system requirements of your scripts. For instance, you could activate APC for a couple of versions of PHP for the entire account and choose the version that each website will use, or you can have the exact same version of PHP, but activate or deactivate APC only for particular Internet sites. You can do this by placing a php.ini file with a line of program code within the domain or subdomain folder where you require the customized configuration.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can take advantage of APC with our semi-dedicated hosting plans and activating the framework is done with a mouse click in the Hepsia Control Panel, so even if you lack previous experience, you will be able to use it to boost your Internet sites. As the cloud hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are made supports multiple PHP releases, you will have flexibility regarding the scripts and web accelerators you can use. It will take you just a click to allow APC for one or a couple of PHP versions and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings that are not the same as the ones for the account in general, you will be able to set what PHP version will be used and whether APC should be allowed or not. This way, one Internet site could use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, whereas another one can use some different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
