APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP websites keep their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that should be viewed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the site visitor. All these actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the web server for each and every page which is opened. While this cannot be avoided for sites with regularly changing content, there're many websites which have the very same content on many of their pages constantly - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etcetera. APC is really useful for this kind of websites as it caches the already compiled code and shows it any time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only greatly reduce the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any Internet site many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

You can use APC with each and every cloud hosting package that we provide since it's already set up on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our system is rather flexible, you'll be able to run sites with different requirements and decide whether they will use APC or not. For example, you can allow APC only for a single release of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the releases that run on our platform. You can also select if all Internet sites using a particular PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be active only for selected Internet sites and not for all sites in the web hosting account. The last option is useful when you wish to employ a different web accelerator for several of your sites. These customizations are done without any difficulty by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can take advantage of APC with all of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and activating this framework is performed with a mouse click in the Hepsia Control Panel, so even if you have no prior experience, you'll be able to use it in order to accelerate your websites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are created is compatible with multiple PHP versions, you'll have freedom with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you could use. It will take you just a click to enable APC for one or several PHP versions and by using a php.ini file in the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are not the same as the ones for the account as a whole, you'll be able to set what PHP release will be used and whether APC should be enabled or not. This way, one website may use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, and another one may use a different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
