APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP websites keep their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that needs to be shown is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the visitor. These actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the server for every single page that is opened. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content material, there're various sites that present the exact same content on many of their pages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etcetera. APC is exceptionally useful for this kind of Internet sites since it caches the previously compiled code and shows it each time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled all over again. This will not only lower the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any Internet site a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting

APC is available with each and every cloud website hosting plan that we offer and you could activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your applications. Several minutes later the framework will be active and you'll notice the considerably quicker loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. Since we provide several versions of PHP which could also be selected through Hepsia, you'll even be able to to use APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP within the very same account. Our leading-edge cloud Internet hosting platform is very adaptable, so if you use an alternative web accelerator for any website and it disturbs APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a specific site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to use APC for each script application that runs on your new semi-dedicated server because the module is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be made. Activating or deactivating APC for the entire account takes one click from the Hepsia Control Panel, but if needed, you can use the module only for particular Internet sites. This is possible because of the versatility of our cloud platform - different releases of PHP run on it simultaneously, so with a php.ini file placed in a website folder, you'll be able to pick what release will be used for this specific Internet site and whether APC should be enabled or disabled. Employing such a file permits you to use settings which are different from the ones for the account, so you'll be able to take advantage of APC for a lot of scripts where the module will make a difference and not for others where you could take advantage of another kind of web accelerator.
