APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP websites save their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content that has to be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the website visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the web server for each page that is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content, there are numerous Internet sites that offer the exact same content on many of their pages at all times - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, and many others. APC is very useful for such websites as it caches the previously compiled code and shows it each time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled all over again. This will not only greatly reduce the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any Internet site several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, which means that you'll be able to use it for your applications whatever the cloud hosting solution that you pick when you join us. The module can be enabled from the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to handle the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it'll boost your sites as it will begin caching their code. If you wish to run websites with different system requirements or take advantage of 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. In this way, you can enable or disable APC not only for a specific website without affecting the other Internet sites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP since 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 employ it whatever the plan you choose. Enabling the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a click, so you will not need any skills or earlier experience to be able to take advantage of it. Since you will be able to use several versions of PHP at the same time, you'll be able to modify the software environment for every single website that you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with a couple of lines in it placed in a domain folder will enable you to set what version of PHP this website will use and whether APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account in general, so you could run various scripts and take advantage of various web accelerators for sites that are in the same account.
