APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP websites hold their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content that needs to be viewed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the website visitor. All these actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the server for every single page that is accessed. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content material, there're various Internet sites which have the very same content on a number of of their webpages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, and many others. APC is very useful for such Internet sites since it caches the already compiled code and shows it when visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. Not only will this reduce the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any website many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

APC is available with each cloud hosting plan that we offer and you could enable it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your applications. A couple of minutes later the framework will be active and you will notice the quicker loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we provide different releases of PHP that can also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP within the very same account. Our advanced cloud web hosting platform is extremely flexible, so if you use a different web accelerator for any Internet site and it disrupts 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 take advantage of APC with all our semi-dedicated server packages and activating this framework is performed with a mouse click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you lack prior experience, you'll be able to use it to quicken your sites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are created is compatible with multiple PHP releases, you'll have flexibility regarding the scripts and web accelerators you can employ. It will take you only a click to enable APC for one or several PHP versions and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings that are different from the ones for the account as a whole, you will be able to set what PHP version will be used and whether APC needs to be enabled or not. This way, one Internet site can use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, while another one may use another accelerator and PHP 5.5.
