APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP sites hold their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content that should be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the website visitor. All of these actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the hosting server for each page that is loaded. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content, there are many sites which present the same content on a number of of their webpages all the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is really useful for such Internet sites as it caches the previously compiled code and displays it any time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled all over again. This will not only lower the server load, but it'll also increase the speed of any Internet site many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our state-of-the-art cloud platform, so you can use it for your applications regardless of the website hosting plan that you choose when you join us. The module can be enabled through the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to handle the shared accounts and just several minutes later it'll boost your websites because it'll begin caching their code. In case you want to run sites with different system requirements or use different web accelerators for any of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not only for a specific Internet site without affecting the remaining sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP as our platform supports multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is installed on the amazing cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created, so you will be able to employ it irrespective of the package you get. Activating the module is performed from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a mouse click, so you won't need any skills or earlier experience to take full advantage of it. Since you'll be able to use several versions of PHP concurrently, you'll be able to customize the software environment for each and every Internet site which you host in the account if needed. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will enable you to set what release of PHP this specific website will use and if APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account in general, so you could run various scripts and use different web accelerators for websites which are in the same account.
