APC, which stands for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script app, that can speed up a database-driven site several times. Each time a PHP web page is accessed, the script pulls the site content which should be shown from a database, parses and compiles the code, and then the result is shown to the site visitor. While this is necessary for sites with regularly changing content, it is a waste of processing time and resources for an Internet site which doesn't change, like an informational portal that shows identical content at all times. When the webpages for such a site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them whenever a website visitor loads them. Since this saves the time to get content from the database and to parse and compile the code, the site will load a lot faster. APC is very efficient particularly for scripts with massive source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

You can employ APC for your web apps with all of the website hosting packages that we offer since it's pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform. Turning it on will take only a mouse click in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our shared plans and several minutes later it'll start caching the program code of your software apps. Our platform is very flexible, so you'll be able to use several configurations determined by the system requirements of your scripts. For instance, you will be able to activate APC for a couple of releases of PHP for the whole account and choose the version that each Internet site can use, or you could have the same version of PHP, but activate or deactivate APC only for specified websites. You can do this by placing a php.ini file with a line of program code inside the domain or subdomain folder where you need the custom configuration.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting solutions as it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. If you want to use this module, you'll be able to enable it with a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional within a couple of minutes. Since you may want to use some other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our outstanding platform will enable you to personalize the software environment inside your account. You can activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it only for some websites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based Internet site can function with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can work without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you could run websites with various requirements inside the same account.
