APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP websites save their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content that has to be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the website visitor. These actions need some processing time and include reading and writing on the web server for every single page which is loaded. While this can't be avoided for websites with regularly changing content material, there're various Internet sites which present the exact same content on a lot of of their pages all the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is exceptionally useful for such sites since it caches the already compiled code and displays it when visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled all over again. Not only will this lower the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any site a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our advanced cloud platform, therefore you will be able to use it for your applications regardless of the shared web hosting solution that you choose when you register. The module can be activated through the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the shared accounts and only several minutes later it will speed up your websites as it'll begin caching their program code. If you wish to run Internet sites with different system requirements or employ different web accelerators for any of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. This way, you could enable or disable APC not only for a specific website without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP as our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use APC with our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and activating this framework is done with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you don't have any prior experience, you could use it in order to boost your websites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are set up supports multiple PHP versions, you'll have freedom regarding the scripts and web accelerators you will be able to use. It will take you only a click to activate 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 which are different from the ones for the account in general, you could set what PHP version will be used and whether APC needs to be enabled or not. In this way, one site could use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, whereas another one may use a different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
