APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP sites keep their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content which needs to be viewed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the website visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the hosting server for each page which is loaded. While this can't be avoided for sites with constantly changing content material, there are many websites that have the very same content on a number of of their pages all the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etcetera. APC is very useful for this kind of Internet sites because it caches the already compiled code and displays it when visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. Not only will this lower the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any website many times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, therefore you will be able to use it for your applications irrespective of the shared hosting solution that you choose when you sign up. The module can be activated from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to maintain the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it will speed up your sites as it'll begin caching their code. If you need to run Internet sites with various system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for some of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. In this way, you could enable or disable APC not just for a specific site without affecting the remaining Internet sites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP as our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can use APC with all of our semi-dedicated server plans and activating the framework is done with a mouse click in the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you lack prior experience, you can use it in order to quicken your Internet sites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are made supports multiple PHP releases, you'll have freedom with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you will be able to use. It will take you only a click to enable APC for one or several PHP versions and by using a php.ini file in the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are not the same as the ones for the account as a whole, you will be able to set what PHP release will be used and whether APC has to be enabled or not. This way, one site could use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, while another one may use another accelerator and PHP 5.5.
