APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP Internet sites keep their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content that needs to be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the site visitor. All these actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the server for every single page that is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for sites with regularly changing content material, there're many websites that feature the exact same content on a number of of their webpages constantly - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is really useful for such Internet sites as it caches the already compiled code and displays it whenever visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have 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 many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

You can use APC with each website hosting package that we provide because it is already installed on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our system is rather flexible, you will be able to run sites with various system requirements and decide whether they will work with APC or not. For example, you could enable APC only for one version of PHP or you can do this for several of the releases running on the platform. It's also possible to decide if all Internet sites working with a particular PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be enabled only for selected Internet sites and not for all Internet sites in the hosting account. The last option is useful if you wish to employ a different web accelerator for several of your websites. These customizations are performed effortlessly by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is set up on the amazing cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are made, so you'll be able to employ it whatever the package you choose. Activating the module is performed through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a mouse click, so you will not need any skills or previous experience in order to take advantage of it. Since you'll be able to employ several versions of PHP concurrently, you could customize the software environment for each Internet site you host in the account if needed. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what version of PHP this specific website will use and if APC needs to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account as a whole, so you can run various scripts and take advantage of different web accelerators for Internet sites that are in the same account.
