APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP Internet sites store their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that should be viewed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the site visitor. These actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the server for each and every page that is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content, there're numerous sites which have the exact same content on a lot of of their pages constantly - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, and many others. APC is really useful for such Internet sites since it caches the already compiled code and displays it each time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. Not only will this minimize the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any website a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting

APC is available with every single cloud website hosting solution that we offer and you could enable it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your web apps. A few minutes later the framework will be active and you will be able to take advantage of the quicker loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we offer several releases of PHP that can also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP inside the very same account. Our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform is extremely flexible, so in case you use some other web accelerator for any Internet site and it interferes with APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a specific site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use APC with our semi-dedicated hosting packages and activating the framework is done with a mouse click in the Hepsia Control Panel, so even if you don't have any previous experience, you'll be able to use it to speed up your Internet sites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are set up supports multiple PHP versions, you will have flexibility with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you can employ. It will take you only a click to allow APC for one or several 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'll be able to set what PHP release will be used and whether APC needs to be allowed or not. This way, one website may use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, whereas another one may use some different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
