APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP sites hold their content within 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 visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the hosting server for every single page which is opened. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content, there're a lot of sites that feature the exact same content on a number of of their webpages constantly - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, and many others. APC is very useful for such sites as it caches the already compiled code and shows it every time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. 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 Cloud Website Hosting
APC is provided with each cloud website hosting
plan that we offer and you could enable it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your web applications. A few minutes later the framework will be working and you will be able to take advantage of the quicker loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. Since we offer several releases of PHP which can also be selected through Hepsia, you'll even be able to to employ APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP in the same account. Our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so if you use some other web accelerator for any website and it disturbs APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a selected site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting
packages because it is pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account shall be created. If you'd like to use this module, you can enable it with a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational in a few minutes. Since you may need to use alternative web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our cutting-edge platform will enable you to personalize the software environment in your account. You can activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it just for some Internet sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal™
-based website can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site could work without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do that is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you can run sites with different requirements in the exact same account.
