APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP sites keep their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content which needs to be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the website visitor. All these actions need some processing time and include reading and writing on the server for every single page that is loaded. While this can't be avoided for websites with regularly changing content material, there're various websites that have the very same content on a lot of of their pages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etcetera. APC is exceptionally useful for this kind of sites as it caches the already compiled code and shows it every time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled all over again. Not only will this minimize the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any site several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting

APC is provided with each shared web hosting package that we offer and you can enable it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your web apps. A couple of minutes later the framework will be active and you'll notice the considerably quicker loading speed of your database-driven websites. As we offer several releases of PHP which can also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP within the same account. Our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform is very flexible, so in case you use another web accelerator for any Internet site and it disrupts APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a particular site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can take advantage of APC with all of our semi-dedicated server packages and activating this framework is performed with a mouse click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, so even if you don't have any prior experience, you will be able to use it in order to quicken your sites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are made supports multiple PHP versions, you'll have flexibility with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you could employ. 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 inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are different from the ones for the account as a whole, you'll be able to set what PHP release will be used and whether APC has to be enabled or not. In this way, one Internet site could use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, and another one may use another accelerator and PHP 5.5.
