APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites save their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content which should be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the visitor. All of these actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the web server for every single page that is opened. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content, there're a lot of sites which have the very same content on many of their pages all the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is extremely useful for such websites as it caches the already compiled code and displays it every time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only minimize the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any Internet site a few times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting
APC is provided with each and every website hosting
solution that we offer and you can enable it with just a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you want to use it for your web apps. Several minutes later the framework will be active and you will be able to take advantage of the faster loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we provide different versions of PHP that could also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts which need different versions of PHP inside the same account. Our next generation cloud Internet hosting platform is very flexible, so if you use another web accelerator for any website and it disturbs APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a certain site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting
plans since it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account shall be created. In case you would like to use this module, you can enable it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional in a few minutes. Since you may want to use other web accelerators for selected websites, our outstanding platform will allow you to personalize the software environment inside your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal™
-based website can work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can work without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the latter is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you will be able to run websites with different requirements inside the exact same account.
