APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP websites hold their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content that needs to be displayed 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 every single page which is loaded. While this can't be avoided for sites with regularly changing content, there're numerous sites that offer the very same content on a number of of their webpages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etcetera. APC is exceptionally useful for this type of sites because it caches the previously compiled code and shows it any time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled all over again. Not only will this reduce the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any site several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

You'll be able to employ APC for your web applications with all of the shared hosting plans that we offer since it is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform. Turning it on will take just a single click inside the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with our shared solutions and several minutes later it'll begin caching the code of your software applications. Our platform is extremely flexible, so you'll be able to use several configurations in accordance with the system requirements of the scripts. For instance, you will be able to activate APC for several releases of PHP for the entire account and set the version that each Internet site can use, or you can have the exact same version of PHP, but enable or disable APC only for particular Internet sites. You can do this by putting a php.ini file with a line of code inside the domain or subdomain folder where you require the customized setup.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use APC with all of our semi-dedicated hosting packages and activating this framework is performed with a mouse click in the Hepsia Control Panel, so even if you don't have any prior experience, you could use it to boost your websites. As the cloud hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are created is compatible with multiple PHP releases, you will have freedom with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you'll be able to use. It will take you just a click to allow APC for one or a couple of PHP versions and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are different from the ones for the account in general, you will be able to set what PHP version will be used and whether APC should be allowed or not. In this way, one site could use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, and another one may use a different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
