APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP websites save their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content which should be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the visitor. All of these actions need some processing time and include reading and writing on the web server for each and every page which is opened. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content material, there're a lot of sites that offer the very same content on many of their pages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etc. APC is extremely useful for this type of websites as it caches the previously compiled code and displays it whenever visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled all over again. This will not only decrease the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any website a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

APC is available with each and every hosting package 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 applications. A few minutes later the framework will be active and you will be able to take advantage of the faster loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we offer several versions of PHP that can also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP in the same account. Our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform is extremely flexible, so if you use a different web accelerator for any website and it interferes with APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned 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 Servers

You can use APC with all our semi-dedicated server solutions and activating the framework is performed with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you lack prior experience, you could use it to accelerate your Internet sites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are set up supports multiple PHP releases, you'll have flexibility with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you can use. It will take you just a click to allow APC for one or several PHP versions and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are not the same as the ones for the account in general, you could set what PHP release will be used and whether APC needs to be enabled or not. This way, one Internet site can use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, and another one may use another accelerator and PHP 5.5.
