APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP sites store their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that has to be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the visitor. All of these actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the web server for each page that is opened. While this cannot be avoided for sites with constantly changing content material, there're various sites that have the very same content on many of their webpages all the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etcetera. APC is extremely useful for this kind of sites since it caches the previously compiled code and shows it every time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only greatly reduce the server load, but it will also increase the speed of any website many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting

You can use APC with each cloud web hosting plan that we offer since it is already installed on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our platform is really flexible, you'll be able to run websites with different requirements and decide if they will work with APC or not. For example, you could enable APC only for a single version of PHP or you could do this for several of the versions that run on our platform. In addition, you can decide if all Internet sites working with a given PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be active just for selected sites and not for all Internet sites in the hosting account. The last option is useful when you need to employ a different web accelerator for several of your websites. These customizations are carried out without any difficulty via a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use APC with all of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions 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 accelerate your websites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are made supports multiple PHP versions, you'll have flexibility regarding the scripts and web accelerators you can employ. It will take you only a click to enable APC for one or several PHP versions and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings that are not the same as the ones for the account in general, you could set what PHP version will be used and whether APC needs to be allowed or not. This way, one website can use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, and another one can use some different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
