APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP sites hold their content inside a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content that should be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the website visitor. All of these actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the hosting server for each page that is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for websites with constantly changing content material, there're many Internet sites that have the very same content on a number of of their pages at all times - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, and many others. APC is exceptionally useful for such sites as it caches the already compiled code and shows it each time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only greatly reduce the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any site a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

APC is available with each shared hosting package that we offer and you can activate it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your applications. A couple of minutes later the framework will be working and you'll be able to take advantage of the considerably quicker loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we provide different versions of PHP which could 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 hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so in case you use a different web accelerator for any website and it disrupts APC, you could activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a particular 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 use it regardless of the plan you choose. Activating the module is performed through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a mouse click, so you won't need any skills or prior experience in order to take full advantage of it. As you'll be able to use several versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll be able to modify the software environment for each website that you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will permit you to set what version of PHP this particular Internet site will use and whether APC should 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 take advantage of different web accelerators for sites that are in the same account.
