APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP Internet sites store their content inside a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content which has to be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the website visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the server for each page that is loaded. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content material, there're numerous websites that have the very same content on a number of of their webpages all of the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, and many others. APC is really useful for this type of sites as it caches the previously compiled code and shows it whenever visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only minimize the server load, but it'll also increase the speed of any Internet site many times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting
APC is available with every single website hosting package that we offer and you can activate it with just a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your applications. Several minutes later the framework will be working and you will experience the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven sites. Since we provide different versions 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 inside the same account. Our next generation cloud Internet hosting platform is very adaptable, so if you use another web accelerator for any website and it disrupts APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the latter 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
You can take advantage of APC with our semi-dedicated hosting plans and activating the framework is done with a mouse click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you lack prior experience, you'll be able to use it to speed up your websites. As the cloud hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are created is compatible with multiple PHP versions, you'll have freedom regarding the scripts and web accelerators you can employ. It will take you just a click to allow APC for one or a couple of PHP versions and by using a php.ini file in the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings that are different from the ones for the account as a whole, you'll be able to set what PHP version will be used and whether APC needs to be enabled or not. This way, one website can use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, and another one could use some different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
