APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP websites store their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content which should be shown is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the visitor. All of these actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the hosting server for each and every page that is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for sites with regularly changing content material, there are various sites which feature the very same content on many of their pages at all times - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, and many others. APC is exceptionally useful for such sites since it caches the already compiled code and shows it any time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this decrease the server load, but it'll also increase the speed of any Internet site a few times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting
APC is provided with each website hosting package that we offer and you can activate it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you want to use it for your applications. A few minutes later the framework will be active and you will notice the faster loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. Since we provide different versions of PHP which could also be selected through Hepsia, you'll even be able to to employ APC for scripts which need different versions of PHP within the very same account. Our next generation cloud web hosting platform is very flexible, so in case you use another web accelerator for any website and it disturbs APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a selected 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 provided with all semi-dedicated hosting solutions since it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you'd like to use this module, you will be able to enable it with just a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional within a few minutes. As you may need to use alternative web accelerators for selected sites, our leading-edge platform will allow you to personalize the software environment in your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it only for some Internet sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based Internet site can function with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website could work without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the latter is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you could run websites with different requirements in the exact same account.
