APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP websites hold their content inside a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content which should be viewed is gathered 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 server for each and every page that is loaded. While this can't be avoided for websites with constantly changing content material, there are numerous websites which have the very same content on a number of of their pages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is exceptionally useful for such websites because it caches the previously compiled code and displays it whenever visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this minimize the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any Internet site a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

You will be able to employ APC for your web apps with any of the website hosting plans that we provide as it is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform. Enabling it will take only a mouse click inside the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our shared plans and a few minutes later it'll begin caching the code of your applications. Our platform is really flexible, so you'll be able to use different configurations based on the system requirements of the scripts. For instance, you will be able to activate APC for a couple of versions of PHP for the entire account and choose the version that each site will use, or you can have the exact same version of PHP, but activate or deactivate APC just for specified Internet sites. You can do this by placing a php.ini file with a line of code in the domain or subdomain folder where you require the custom setup.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use APC for each and every script application that is run on your new semi-dedicated hosting as the module is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be made. Activating or deactivating APC for the account takes a single click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, but if necessary, you can use the module just for particular Internet sites. This is possible due to the versatility of our cloud platform - several releases of PHP run on it at the same time, so with a php.ini file placed in a website folder, you will be able to pick what release will be used for this specific site and whether APC has to be enabled or disabled. Using such a file allows you to use settings which are different from the standard ones for the account, so you'll be able to take advantage of APC for many scripts where the module makes a difference and not for others where you can take advantage of some other kind of web accelerator.
