APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP websites keep their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that has to be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the site visitor. All these actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the hosting server for each page that is loaded. While this can't be avoided for websites with regularly changing content material, there are numerous Internet sites that have the very same content on a number of of their pages constantly - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is exceptionally useful for this kind of websites as it caches the previously compiled code and shows it any time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. Not only will this greatly reduce the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any site several times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting
You'll be able to use APC for your web applications with any of the cloud website hosting packages that we provide since it's pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform. Turning it on will take just a mouse click inside the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our shared plans and a couple of minutes later it'll start caching the code of your applications. Our platform is very flexible, so you will be able to use different configurations depending on the system requirements of your scripts. For instance, you'll be able to activate APC for several versions of PHP for the whole account and choose the version that each Internet site will use, or you can have the exact same version of PHP, but enable or disable APC just for specific Internet sites. You can do this by putting a php.ini file with a line of program code in the domain or subdomain folder where you need the custom configuration.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers
APC is provided with all semi-dedicated server solutions since it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you'd like to use this module, you will be able to enable it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational within a couple of minutes. As you may want to use alternative web accelerators for selected websites, our cutting-edge platform will permit you to customize the software environment in your account. You can activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it only for some websites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based site can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website could work without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the latter is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you'll be able to run Internet sites with various requirements in the very same account.
