APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP sites save their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content which needs to be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the site visitor. These actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the server for each page that is accessed. While this cannot be avoided for sites with regularly changing content material, there're various Internet sites which feature the exact same content on many of their pages all the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, and many others. APC is really useful for this type of websites because it caches the previously compiled code and displays it any time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only minimize the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any Internet site a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, which means that you'll be able to use it for your web applications irrespective of the cloud website hosting plan that you choose when you sign up. The module can be enabled from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to take care of the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it'll boost your Internet sites since it will start caching their code. If you need to run sites with various system requirements or use different web accelerators for any of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. Thus, you could enable or disable APC not just for a certain Internet site without affecting the remaining Internet sites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP as our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is set up on the innovative cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are made, so you could use it whatever the package you select. Enabling the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a click, so you will not need any skills or earlier experience to be able to take advantage of it. As you will be able to work with several versions of PHP at once, you'll be able to customize the software environment for each and every Internet site you host in the account if needed. 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 site will use and whether APC needs to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account as a whole, so you could run various scripts and take advantage of various web accelerators for websites that are in the same account.
