APC, which means Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script application, that can speed up a database-driven Internet site several times. Every time a PHP page is accessed, the script pulls the content which has to be shown from a database, parses and compiles the program code, then the result is shown to the site visitor. While this is necessary for websites with regularly changing content, it is a waste of processing time and resources for a site that does not change, like an informational portal which shows the same content on a regular basis. As soon as the webpages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them every time a website visitor loads them. As this saves the time to obtain content from the database and to parse and compile the code, your website will load significantly faster. APC is really effective especially for scripts with larger source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our advanced cloud platform, so you can use it for your web applications irrespective of the hosting package that you choose when you sign up. The module can be enabled from the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it will speed up your websites since it'll begin caching their program code. In case you wish to run websites with different system requirements or employ different web accelerators for some of them, you can customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a certain website without affecting the remaining sites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP since our platform supports multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated server solutions as it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you want to use this module, you can enable it with a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional within a few minutes. As you may want to use alternative web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our cutting-edge platform will permit you to customize the software environment inside your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it just for some websites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based site can function with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you could run sites with different requirements in the exact same account.
