APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP sites hold their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that has to be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the website visitor. All these actions take some processing time and involve reading and writing on the web server for each and every page that is opened. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content, there're numerous sites that present the exact same content on a number of of their webpages all the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, and many others. APC is really useful for this kind of sites since it caches the already compiled code and displays it any time visitors browse the cached webpages, 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'll also raise the speed of any website many times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, which means that you can use it for your applications regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you pick when you register. The module can be enabled from the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to control the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it'll speed up your sites as it'll begin caching their program code. In case you need to run sites with different system requirements or employ different web accelerators for some of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a specific website without affecting the other 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 Hosting
APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting packages because it is pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. If you'd like to use this module, you'll be able to activate it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional in a couple of minutes. Since you may want to use alternative web accelerators for selected websites, our state-of-the-art platform will enable you to personalize the software environment in your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it just for some sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based website can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can function without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you'll be able to run Internet sites with different requirements in the same account.
