APC, which is short for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script application, which can boost a database-driven site several times. Every time a PHP webpage is accessed, the script pulls the content that should be displayed from a database, parses and compiles the code, and then the result is displayed to the site visitor. While this is necessary for websites with regularly changing content, it's a complete waste of processing time and resources for a site which doesn't change, like an informational portal that shows the same content on a regular basis. As soon as the pages for such a website are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them any time a user opens them. Since this saves the time to request content from the database and to parse and compile the code, your Internet site will load considerably faster. APC is very effective especially for scripts with large source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, so you'll be able to use it for your web applications irrespective of the shared website hosting package that you choose when you sign up. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to handle the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it'll boost your websites since it will begin caching their program code. If you would like to run websites with different system requirements or use specific web accelerators for some of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. In this way, you could enable or disable APC not just for a certain website without affecting the remaining websites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP because our platform supports multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is available with all semi-dedicated server plans as it is 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 activate it with a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional in a few minutes. Since you may want to use alternative web accelerators for selected websites, our outstanding platform will permit you to customize the software environment inside your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some sites 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 using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do that is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you will be able to run Internet sites with different requirements in the very same account.
