APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP websites keep their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content which has to be shown is gathered 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 sites with constantly changing content material, there are various sites which feature the same content on a lot of of their webpages constantly - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etcetera. APC is extremely useful for such websites because it caches the already compiled code and displays it whenever visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only lower the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any site several times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting
You will be able to employ APC for your web applications with all of the shared hosting plans that we offer since it's pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform. Activating it will take just a click inside the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our shared solutions and a couple of minutes later it'll begin caching the code of your applications. Our platform is really flexible, so you will be able to use several configurations based on the system requirements of your scripts. For example, you'll be able to activate APC for a couple of versions of PHP for the whole account and set the version that each Internet site will use, or you could have the exact same version of PHP, but enable or disable APC just for particular websites. You can do this by putting a php.ini file with a line of program code in the domain or subdomain folder where you require the custom configuration.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers
APC is provided with all semi-dedicated server plans because it is pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you'd like to use this module, you can enable it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational in a few minutes. As you may want to use some other web accelerators for selected websites, our outstanding platform will allow you to customize the software environment inside your account. You can activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it just for some Internet sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based site can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do that is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you can run websites with different requirements from the very same account.
