APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP websites store their content inside a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content which needs to be shown is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the visitor. These actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the web server for each page which is accessed. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content, there're a lot of sites which feature the very same content on many of their webpages constantly - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etc. APC is extremely useful for such sites since it caches the previously compiled code and shows it every time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled again. 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 Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, which means that you will be able to use it for your applications irrespective of the cloud hosting package that you select when you sign up. The module can be activated from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to handle the shared accounts and only several minutes later it'll speed up your websites since it'll start caching their code. In case you wish to run Internet sites with different system requirements or use different web accelerators for any of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. Thus, you could enable or disable APC not just for a certain Internet site without affecting the remaining websites in the account, but also for a particular 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 installed on the amazing cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are made, so you'll be able to use it irrespective of the plan you select. Enabling the module is performed through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a mouse click, so you won't need any skills or prior experience to take full advantage of it. Since you'll be able to employ several versions of PHP at the same time, you'll be able to customize the software environment for each and every website that you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what version of PHP this particular website will use and if APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account as a whole, so you could run various scripts and use different web accelerators for Internet sites which are in the same account.
