APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP websites save their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content which needs to be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the visitor. All these actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the hosting server for each and every page which is accessed. While this cannot be avoided for sites with constantly changing content material, there're a lot of sites that have the exact same content on a number of of their webpages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etcetera. APC is very useful for such Internet sites because it caches the previously compiled code and displays it any time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this decrease the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any site a few times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, so you can use it for your applications irrespective of the cloud hosting package that you select when you sign up. The module can be activated from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the shared accounts and only a few minutes later it will boost your Internet sites since it will start caching their code. If you want to run sites with various system requirements or take advantage of different web accelerators for some of them, you could customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. In this way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a specific website without affecting the remaining websites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is installed 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 package you choose. Activating the module is performed through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a mouse click, so you won't need any skills or previous experience in order to take full advantage of it. As you'll be able to work with different versions of PHP at the same time, you'll be able to modify the software environment for each site you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what release of PHP this specific website will use and if 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 can run various scripts and take advantage of different web accelerators for sites that are in the same account.
