APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP websites store their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content which has to be viewed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the hosting server for every single page which is accessed. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content, there're many Internet sites which have the exact same content on many of their webpages constantly - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, and many others. APC is quite useful for such sites since it caches the already compiled code and displays it any time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled all over again. Not only will this lower the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any website several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting

APC is provided with each and every cloud web hosting solution that we offer and you could activate it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your applications. A few minutes later the framework will be active and you'll notice the considerably quicker loading speed of your database-driven sites. Since we offer different versions of PHP that can also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP within the same account. Our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform is very flexible, so if you use an alternative web accelerator for any website and it disturbs APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a particular site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use APC for each and every script application that is run on your new semi-dedicated hosting as the module is already installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be made. Activating or deactivating APC for the entire account takes a single click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, but if needed, you can use the module only for certain sites. This is possible on account of the versatility of our cloud platform - multiple releases of PHP run on it simultaneously, so with a php.ini file placed in a site folder, you will be able to select what version will be used for this particular website and whether APC has to be enabled or disabled. Using such a file permits you to use settings which are different from the standard ones for the account, so you will be able to take advantage of APC for many scripts where the module makes a difference and not for others where you may take advantage of a different kind of web accelerator.
