APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script apps. 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 retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the visitor. These actions take some processing time and involve reading and writing on the hosting server for each and every page that is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for sites with constantly changing content, there are numerous Internet sites that present the exact same content on many of their pages constantly - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etcetera. APC is quite useful for such sites because it caches the previously compiled code and shows it each time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only minimize the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any Internet site many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting

APC is available with each shared website hosting package that we offer and you could enable it with just a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you want to use it for your web applications. Several minutes later the framework will be working and you will be able to take advantage of the considerably quicker loading speed of your database-driven websites. As we provide different releases of PHP that can also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP in the very same account. Our advanced cloud Internet hosting platform is extremely flexible, so in case you use another web accelerator for any website and it interferes with APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a certain 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 state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created, so you'll be able to employ it whatever the plan you choose. Activating the module is performed through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a click, so you won't need any skills or prior experience to take advantage of it. As you will be able to employ several versions of PHP at once, you'll be able to customize the software environment for each Internet site which you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with a couple of lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what release of PHP this website will use and whether APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account in general, so you can run various scripts and employ various web accelerators for websites which are in the same account.
