APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites save their content in a database that 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 is delivered to the visitor. All these actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the web server for each and every page which is accessed. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content, there're many Internet sites that have the same content on a number of of their pages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is very useful for this kind of Internet sites since it caches the already compiled code and displays it whenever visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. Not only will this lower the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any Internet site a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

You can use APC with each cloud hosting package that we provide as it is already set up on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. As our system is really flexible, you will be able to run Internet sites with various system requirements and decide if they will work with APC or not. For example, you could activate APC only for a single version of PHP or you could do this for several of the releases running on our platform. You can also select if all sites using a particular PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be enabled only for selected websites and not for all websites in the website hosting account. The last option is useful if you need to employ a different web accelerator for several of your websites. These customizations are carried out effortlessly through a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can take full advantage of APC with all of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and activating the framework is done with a mouse click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you lack previous experience, you will be able to use it in order to accelerate your websites. As the cloud hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are created supports multiple PHP releases, you'll have freedom 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 releases and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are not the same as the ones for the account in general, you'll be able to set what PHP version will be used and whether APC has to be enabled or not. In this way, one Internet site may use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, while another one could use some other accelerator and PHP 5.5.
