APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP sites save their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content that should be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the visitor. All of these actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the web server for each and every page that is opened. While this can't be avoided for sites with regularly changing content, there're a lot of Internet sites which feature the very same content on many of their pages at all times - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etcetera. APC is very useful for this type of Internet sites as 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 again. This will not only minimize the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any site several times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting
APC is available with each and every hosting package that we offer and you could activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your web apps. Several minutes later the framework will be active and you'll notice the faster loading speed of your database-driven sites. Since we offer several releases of PHP that could also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts which need different versions of PHP within the same account. Our high tech cloud Internet hosting platform is very flexible, so if you use another web accelerator for any Internet site and it disturbs APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a selected site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is installed on the amazing cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are made, so you could employ it irrespective of the package you pick. Enabling the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a mouse click, so you will not need any skills or prior experience in order to take full advantage of it. Since you'll be able to work with several versions of PHP simultaneously, you will be able to customize the software environment for each and every Internet site that you host in the account if needed. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will permit you to set what version of PHP this website will use and if APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account in general, so you could run different scripts and use different web accelerators for Internet sites which are in the same account.
