APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites hold their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that needs to be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the website visitor. All these actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the web server for each page that is opened. While this cannot be avoided for websites with regularly changing content material, there are various Internet sites which offer the very same content on a lot of of their webpages at all times - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etc. APC is exceptionally useful for this kind of websites because it caches the previously compiled code and displays it when visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this reduce the server load, but it will also increase the speed of any website a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

You can employ APC for your web applications with any of the shared hosting plans that we offer because it is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform. Activating it will take only a click in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our shared plans and a few minutes later it'll begin caching the program code of your apps. Our platform is very flexible, so you'll be able to use different configurations in accordance with the system requirements of the scripts. For instance, you will be able to activate APC for a couple of versions of PHP for the entire account and pick the version that each website can use, or you can have the same version of PHP, but enable or disable APC just for particular websites. You can do this by putting a php.ini file with a line of program code inside the domain or subdomain folder where you require the customized setup.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use APC for each and every script application which is run on your new semi-dedicated hosting as the module is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be made. Activating or deactivating APC for the account requires a single click in the Hepsia Control Panel, but if necessary, you could use the module just for particular sites. This is possible because of the versatility of our cloud platform - different versions of PHP run on it simultaneously, so with a php.ini file placed in a website folder, you will be able to pick what version will be used for this specific site and whether APC should be enabled or disabled. Employing such a file enables you to use settings which are different from the standard ones for your account, so you can take full advantage of APC for a lot of scripts where the module makes a difference and not for others where you could employ a different kind of web accelerator.
