APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP sites save their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content which needs to be viewed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the visitor. All these actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the web server for every single page that is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content, there're many websites which have the same content on a number of of their pages at all times - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, and many others. APC is very useful for this kind of websites because it caches the already compiled code and shows it when visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only lower the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any Internet site several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

APC is available with each and every website hosting package that we offer and you can activate it with just a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your applications. A few minutes later the framework will be working and you'll be able to take advantage of the faster loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we offer different versions of PHP that can also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP within the same account. Our high tech cloud Internet hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so in case you use a different web accelerator for any Internet site 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 generated in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can take full advantage of APC with all our semi-dedicated server plans and activating the framework is done with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel, so even if you have no previous experience, you'll be able to use it in order to quicken your websites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are set up is compatible with multiple PHP releases, you will have flexibility regarding the scripts and web accelerators you will be able to employ. It will take you only a click to enable APC for one or a couple of PHP releases and by using a php.ini file in the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings that are not the same as the ones for the account in general, you can set what PHP version will be used and whether APC has to be allowed or not. In this way, one Internet site could use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, while another one may use some other accelerator and PHP 5.5.
