APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites store their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content that should be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the website visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the web server for each and every page which is loaded. While this can't be avoided for websites with regularly changing content material, there're many sites which have the exact same content on many of their pages constantly - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, and many others. APC is quite useful for this type of Internet sites as it caches the already compiled code and shows it when visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only reduce the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any Internet site a few times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting
APC is available with each cloud hosting plan that we offer and you could enable it with just a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you want to use it for your applications. A few minutes later the framework will be working and you'll experience the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we offer several releases of PHP that can also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP inside the same account. Our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so if you use an alternative web accelerator for any website and it disrupts APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a specific site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers
APC is provided with all semi-dedicated server solutions because it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you would like to use this module, you will be able to activate it with just a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational within a couple of minutes. Since you may want to use other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our leading-edge platform will enable you to personalize the software environment in your account. You will be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based site could work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website could work without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do that is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you can run Internet sites with different requirements in the very same account.
