APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP sites keep their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content which needs to be shown is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and involve reading and writing on the hosting server for each and every 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 have the same content on many of their pages at all times - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etc. APC is extremely useful for this kind of Internet sites as it caches the already compiled code and shows it every time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only reduce the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any Internet site several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

APC is available with every single cloud hosting solution that we offer and you could activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you want to use it for your applications. Several minutes later the framework will be active and you will be able to take advantage of the considerably quicker loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we provide different versions of PHP that can also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP inside the very same account. Our high tech cloud web hosting platform is extremely flexible, so in case you use an alternative web accelerator for any website and it disrupts APC, you could activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a certain site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.

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 made, so you will be able to employ it regardless of the package you get. Activating the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a click, so you will not need any skills or prior experience to take full advantage of it. As you will be able to work with different releases of PHP at the same time, you'll be able to customize the software environment for each website you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with a couple of lines in it placed in a domain folder will permit you to set what version of PHP this particular Internet site will use and whether APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account as a whole, so you could run different scripts and employ different web accelerators for websites which are in the same account.
