APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites keep their content in a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content that has to be shown is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the visitor. These actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the web server for each and every page which is accessed. While this can't be avoided for sites with regularly changing content material, there are numerous Internet sites that present the exact same content on many of their webpages at all times - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is really useful for this kind of sites because it caches the already compiled code and shows it whenever visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this minimize the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any site many times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, which means that you'll be able to use it for your web applications regardless of the hosting plan that you pick when you join us. The module can be activated from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to maintain the shared accounts and only a few minutes later it'll speed up your sites as it'll begin caching their code. If you would like to run Internet sites with various system requirements or use specific web accelerators for some of them, you can customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. In this way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a certain website without affecting the other sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP since our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is installed on the state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are made, so you will be able to use it regardless of the package you choose. Activating the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a mouse click, so you won't need any skills or previous experience in order to take advantage of it. As you will be able to use several releases of PHP simultaneously, you will be able to modify the software environment for each and every Internet site which you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will permit you to set what version of PHP this Internet site will use and whether APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account in general, so you could run different scripts and employ various web accelerators for websites that are in the same account.
