APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP sites store their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content that should be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the website visitor. All these actions take some processing time and involve reading and writing on the server for each and every page which is opened. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content material, there're numerous Internet sites which have the same content on a lot of of their pages at all times - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etcetera. APC is extremely useful for this kind of Internet sites because it caches the previously compiled code and shows it any time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only lower the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any website several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to employ APC for your web apps with any of the cloud hosting plans that we offer since it is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform. Turning it on will take just a single click in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our shared plans and a couple of minutes later it'll begin caching the program code of your software applications. Our platform is very flexible, so you will be able to use different configurations in accordance with the system requirements of the scripts. For instance, you'll be able to activate APC for several versions of PHP for the entire account and choose the version that each website can use, or you can have the very same version of PHP, but activate or deactivate APC just for specified Internet sites. This is done by putting a php.ini file with a line of code within the domain or subdomain folder where you require the custom configuration.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is installed on the state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are made, so you'll be able to use it irrespective of the plan you select. Activating the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a mouse click, so you won't need any skills or earlier experience to take advantage of it. Since you will be able to employ several versions of PHP simultaneously, you will be able to modify the software environment for every single website you host in the account if needed. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will enable you to set what version of PHP this site will use and whether APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account in general, so you could run different scripts and employ different web accelerators for sites that are in the same account.
