APC, which stands for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script application, that can speed up a database-driven site several times. Each time a PHP webpage is accessed, the script pulls the website content that has to be loaded from a database, parses and compiles the code, and then the result is shown to the visitor. While this is necessary for sites with regularly changing content, it is a complete waste of processing time and system resources for an Internet site which doesn't change, for instance an informational portal which shows the very same content all the time. As soon as the webpages for such a site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them each time a visitor accesses them. Since this saves the time to get content from the database and to parse and compile the code, the site will load much quicker. APC is very efficient in particular for scripts with larger source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, so you can use it for your web applications whatever the shared website hosting plan that you choose when you sign up. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to control the shared accounts and only several minutes later it will boost your Internet sites since it will begin caching their code. In case you wish to run sites with various system requirements or use different web accelerators for some 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 only for a certain Internet site without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is installed on the amazing cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are made, so you could employ it whatever the plan you select. Enabling the module is performed from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a click, so you won't need any skills or previous experience in order to take full advantage of it. As you'll be able to employ several releases of PHP at the same time, you'll be able to modify the software environment for each website which you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what version of PHP this particular Internet site will use and whether APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account as a whole, so you could run different scripts and take advantage of different web accelerators for sites that are in the same account.
