APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP websites store their content inside a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content which has to be shown is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the site visitor. All these actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the server for every single page which is opened. While this cannot be avoided for sites with constantly changing content material, there are various Internet sites which feature the exact same content on many of their webpages constantly - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etcetera. APC is exceptionally useful for this kind of websites since it caches the previously compiled code and displays it every time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only reduce the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any site many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, which means that you'll be able to use it for your applications irrespective of the shared web hosting solution that you pick when you sign up. The module can be activated through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to control the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it'll speed up your websites as it'll begin caching their program code. If you wish to run sites with different system requirements or employ different web accelerators for some of them, you could customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a certain site without affecting the remaining websites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can use APC for each script application that runs on your new semi-dedicated server as the module is already installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be created. Activating or deactivating APC for the account requires a click from the Hepsia Control Panel, but if necessary, you could use the module only for certain websites. This is possible as a result of the flexibility of our cloud platform - different versions of PHP run on it simultaneously, so with a php.ini file placed in a site folder, you'll be able to pick what version will be used for this specific website and whether APC has to be enabled or disabled. Employing such a file permits you to use settings which are different from the standard ones for the account, so you will be able to take advantage of APC for many scripts where the module can make a difference and not for others where you can take advantage of another type of web accelerator.
