APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP sites store their content inside a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content that should be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the website visitor. All of these actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the web server for every single page which is accessed. While this can't be avoided for sites with regularly changing content material, there are numerous websites which offer the same content on a lot of of their webpages at all times - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, and many others. APC is exceptionally useful for such Internet sites as it caches the already compiled code and shows it every time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only greatly reduce the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any website many times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting
You can use APC with each and every cloud hosting package that we offer because it is already installed on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our platform is quite flexible, you will be able to run Internet sites with different requirements and decide whether they will work with APC or not. For example, you can allow APC only for one version of PHP or you could do this for several of the releases running on our platform. You can also decide if all Internet sites working with a certain PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be enabled just for selected sites and not for all Internet sites in the website hosting account. The last option is useful if you need to employ a different web accelerator for some of your sites. These customizations are performed without any difficulty through a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers
APC is available with all semi-dedicated server packages since it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account shall be created. If you'd like to use this module, you'll be able to activate it with just a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational in a couple of minutes. Since you may need to use alternative web accelerators for selected websites, our outstanding platform will allow you to customize the software environment in your account. You can activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some Internet sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based site could work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can function without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do that is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you will be able to run websites with various requirements from the very same account.
