APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP websites store their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content which should be viewed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the visitor. These actions take some processing time and involve reading and writing on the web server for each page which is loaded. While this can't be avoided for websites with constantly changing content material, there are a lot of Internet sites which have the exact same content on a lot of of their pages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, and many others. APC is exceptionally useful for this type of websites because it caches the previously compiled code and displays it every time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled all over again. Not only will this decrease the server load, but it'll also increase the speed of any website many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, so you will be able to use it for your web applications whatever the cloud web hosting plan that you choose when you register. The module can be activated from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to control the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it will boost your sites because it will begin caching their program code. If you want to run sites with various system requirements or take advantage of specific web accelerators for some of them, you can customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. Thus, you could enable or disable APC not only for a specific website without affecting the other Internet sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can take advantage of APC with all of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and activating this framework is done with a click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you lack prior experience, you'll be able to use it to accelerate your Internet sites. As the cloud hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are made is compatible with multiple PHP versions, you'll have flexibility regarding the scripts and web accelerators you can employ. It will take you only a click to activate 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 not the same as the ones for the account in general, you can set what PHP version will be used and whether APC should be enabled or not. This way, one website can use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, whereas another one could use some other accelerator and PHP 5.5.
