APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP websites keep their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content which has to be shown is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the website visitor. All these actions need some processing time and include reading and writing on the hosting server for each page that is accessed. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content material, there are numerous websites which offer the same content on a lot of of their webpages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, and many others. APC is exceptionally useful for this type of sites because it caches the already compiled code and displays it any time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled all over again. This will not only greatly reduce the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any website a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

You can use APC with each and every website hosting package that we offer since it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our system is rather flexible, you'll be able to run sites with different system requirements and decide whether they will work with APC or not. For instance, you can activate APC only for a single version of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the versions running on the platform. You may also select if all sites working with a particular PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be enabled just for selected sites and not for all websites in the web hosting account. The last option is useful if you need to employ a different web accelerator for several of your websites. These customizations are carried out effortlessly through a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can take full advantage of APC with our semi-dedicated server packages and activating the framework is performed with a mouse click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you don't have any previous experience, you could use it in order to speed up your Internet sites. As the cloud hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are set up is compatible with multiple PHP versions, you will have freedom with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you can use. It will take you only 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 which are not the same as the ones for the account as a whole, you will be able to set what PHP release will be used and whether APC should be allowed or not. This way, one website could use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, whereas another one may use another accelerator and PHP 5.5.
