APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP sites save their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content which has to be displayed 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 require reading and writing on the server for every single page that is accessed. While this can't be avoided for websites with regularly changing content material, there are a lot of sites that feature the exact same content on a lot of of their pages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is exceptionally useful for such sites since it caches the already compiled code and shows it any time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this reduce the server load, but it will also increase the speed of any Internet site several times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to employ APC for your web applications with any of the cloud hosting
packages that we offer since it is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform. Activating it will take just a click inside the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with our shared plans and several minutes later it will start caching the program code of your software apps. Our platform is very flexible, so you will be able to use different configurations determined by the system requirements of your scripts. For instance, you will be able to activate APC for several versions of PHP for the whole account and pick the version that each Internet site will use, or you could have the same version of PHP, but activate or deactivate APC only for particular sites. You can do this by placing a php.ini file with a line of program code inside the domain or subdomain folder where you require the customized configuration.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is installed on the innovative cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting
accounts are made, so you will be able to use it regardless of the package you choose. Enabling the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a click, so you won't need any skills or prior experience to take full advantage of it. As you will be able to work with different versions of PHP at once, you'll be able to modify the software environment for each website you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what version of PHP this specific site will use and whether APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account in general, so you can run different scripts and take advantage of various web accelerators for sites that are in the same account.
