APC, which is short for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script app, which could speed up a database-driven Internet site several times. Any time a PHP webpage is opened, the script pulls the content that needs to be loaded from a database, parses and compiles the code, then the result is displayed to the visitor. While this is necessary for sites with regularly changing content, it is a total waste of processing time and resources for a website that does not change, for example an informational portal which shows identical content all the time. When the web pages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them each time a visitor loads them. As this saves the time to obtain content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, your website will load significantly faster. APC is very efficient especially for scripts with larger source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, therefore you'll be able to use it for your applications irrespective of the web hosting package that you choose when you register. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to maintain the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it'll boost your Internet sites as it'll begin caching their program code. If you wish to run sites with various system requirements or use different web accelerators for some of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a particular site without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP as 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's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. If you would like to use this module, you can activate it with a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional in a few minutes. As you may need to use other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our advanced platform will enable you to personalize the software environment inside your account. You can activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some Internet sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based site can work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site could work without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you'll be able to run sites with various requirements in the same account.
