APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP websites save their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content that has to be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the website visitor. All of these actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the server for every single page that is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for sites with constantly changing content material, there are numerous Internet sites which feature the very same content on a number of of their pages constantly - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etcetera. APC is quite useful for this kind of sites because it caches the previously compiled code and displays it any time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled all over again. This will not only decrease the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any Internet site several times.

APC is available with each and every cloud web hosting plan that we offer and you can activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your web applications. A couple of minutes later the framework will be active and you'll notice the considerably quicker loading speed of your database-driven websites. As we provide different versions of PHP that could also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP inside the very same account. Our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform is very adaptable, so in case you use a different web accelerator for any Internet site and it disturbs APC, you will 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

APC is set up on the amazing cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created, so you will be able to employ it irrespective of the plan you get. Enabling the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a mouse click, so you won't need any skills or previous experience to be able to take full advantage of it. As you'll be able to use different versions of PHP simultaneously, you will be able to modify the software environment for each and every site that you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with a couple of lines in it placed in a domain folder will permit you to set what release of PHP this website will use and if APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account as a whole, so you could run different scripts and use various web accelerators for websites which are in the same account.
