APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP Internet sites keep their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content that has to be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the site visitor. All these actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the hosting server for each page which is loaded. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content material, there're many websites that have the very same content on many of their webpages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is extremely useful for this type of sites since it caches the previously compiled code and shows it any time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only greatly reduce the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any Internet site several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting

APC is provided with each cloud website hosting package that we offer and you could activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you want to use it for your web applications. Several minutes later the framework will be active and you will notice the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. As we provide different versions of PHP that can also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP within the very same account. Our advanced cloud web hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so in case you use another web accelerator for any Internet site and it disturbs APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a particular site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use APC for every single script application that is run on your new semi-dedicated server since the module is already installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be generated. Activating or deactivating APC for the entire account requires one click in the Hepsia Control Panel, but if needed, you can use the module only for particular websites. This is possible due to the versatility of our cloud platform - different releases of PHP run on it simultaneously, so with a php.ini file placed in a site folder, you can choose what release will be used for this particular site and whether APC should be enabled or disabled. Using such a file enables you to use settings that are different from the standard ones for the account, so you will be able to take advantage of APC for some scripts where the module can make a difference and not for others where you can use some other kind of web accelerator.
