APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP sites store their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content that should be shown is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the website visitor. These actions take some processing time and involve reading and writing on the hosting server for each and every page that is loaded. While this can't be avoided for sites with constantly changing content material, there are a lot of Internet sites which feature the exact same content on a lot of of their webpages all of the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is very useful for this type of Internet sites as it caches the already compiled code and shows it whenever visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled all over again. This will not only reduce the server load, but it'll also increase the speed of any site many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

APC is available with every single hosting solution that we offer and you could activate it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your applications. Several minutes later the framework will be working and you'll experience the faster loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we provide different versions of PHP that could also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts which need different versions of PHP inside the very same account. Our state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform is very adaptable, so if you use an alternative web accelerator for any Internet site and it disturbs 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

You can use APC with our semi-dedicated server plans and activating the framework is done with a mouse click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, so even if you have no prior experience, you will be able to use it in order to quicken your sites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are made supports multiple PHP versions, you will have freedom regarding the scripts and web accelerators you can employ. It will take you only a click to allow APC for one or a couple of PHP versions and by using a php.ini file in the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings that are not the same as the ones for the account as a whole, you can set what PHP release will be used and whether APC needs to be allowed or not. In this way, one Internet site could use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, while another one can use some different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
