APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP websites store their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content which has to be shown is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the website visitor. These actions take some processing time and involve reading and writing on the hosting server for each page which is opened. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content material, there are many Internet sites which present the same content on a number of of their webpages at all times - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, and many others. APC is really useful for this kind of websites as 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 repeatedly. Not only will this greatly reduce the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any website many times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our state-of-the-art cloud platform, so you can use it for your applications regardless of the shared hosting plan that you choose when you register. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to maintain the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it'll speed up your Internet sites since it will begin caching their code. If you would like to run sites with various system requirements or use different web accelerators for any of them, you can customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. In this way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a certain website without affecting the other Internet sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can take advantage of APC with all of our semi-dedicated hosting packages and activating the framework is performed with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you lack previous experience, you can use it in order to boost your websites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are set up is compatible with multiple PHP releases, you'll have freedom with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you can employ. It will take you just a click to allow APC for one or a couple of PHP releases and by using a php.ini file in 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 has to be allowed or not. In this way, one site could use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, while another one may use a different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
