APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites hold their content inside a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that has to be shown is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the website visitor. These actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the web server for each page which is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for websites with constantly changing content material, there're numerous sites that have the same content on a lot of of their webpages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, and many others. APC is very useful for this kind of sites since it caches the previously compiled code and shows it any time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled all over again. Not only will this greatly reduce the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any Internet site a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

You can use APC with every single cloud hosting package that we offer since it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our system is rather flexible, you'll be able to run sites with different requirements and decide if they will work with APC or not. For example, you could enable APC only for one version of PHP or you can do this for several of the versions that run on the platform. You can also choose if all sites using a given PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be active just for selected Internet sites and not for all websites in the web hosting account. The last option is useful when you wish to employ a different web accelerator for several of your websites. These customizations are carried out with ease by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use APC with our semi-dedicated hosting packages and activating the framework is done with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you have no previous experience, you can use it in order to accelerate your websites. As the cloud hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are made is compatible with multiple PHP versions, you'll have freedom regarding the scripts and web accelerators you will be able to employ. It will take you only a click to enable APC for one or a couple of PHP releases and by using a php.ini file in the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings that are different from the ones for the account in general, you'll be able to set what PHP release will be used and whether APC needs to be allowed or not. In this way, one Internet site can use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, and another one could use some different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
