APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites hold their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that should be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the website visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and involve reading and writing on the server for each and every page that is opened. While this cannot be avoided for websites with regularly changing content material, there are a lot of sites which feature the same content on a lot of of their pages constantly - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etcetera. APC is really useful for this kind of sites as it caches the previously compiled code and shows it when visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only decrease the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any Internet site several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our state-of-the-art cloud platform, so you will be able to use it for your web applications irrespective of the shared website hosting solution that you pick when you register. The module can be activated from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to control the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it will boost your websites as it will start caching their program code. If you need to run websites with different system requirements or take advantage of specific web accelerators for any of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. This way, you could enable or disable APC not just for a specific website without affecting the remaining Internet sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP since our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is set up on the innovative cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are created, so you could use it irrespective of the plan you get. Enabling the module is performed through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a mouse click, so you won't need any skills or earlier experience to take full advantage of it. As you'll be able to work with different releases of PHP at once, you will be able to customize the software environment for every single website which you host in the account if necessary. 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 Internet site will use and if APC needs 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 various web accelerators for Internet sites that are in the same account.
