APC, which is an acronym for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script app, that can boost a database-driven Internet site several times. Every time a PHP webpage is opened, the script pulls the website content that needs to be shown from a database, parses and compiles the program code, and then the result is displayed to the website visitor. While this is necessary for Internet sites with routinely changing content, it is a waste of processing time and resources for a website that does not change, for example an informational portal which shows the very same content on a regular basis. As soon as the webpages for such a site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them any time a visitor loads them. As this saves the time to collect content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, your website will load significantly quicker. APC is very efficient especially for scripts with large source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, which means that you will be able to use it for your web applications irrespective of the cloud website hosting plan that you select when you register. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to manage the shared accounts and just several minutes later it'll boost your sites because it'll begin caching their code. If you would like to run sites with various system requirements or employ different web accelerators for any of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a specific site without affecting the other Internet sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP as our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting packages because it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. If you'd like to use this module, you'll be able to enable it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional in a couple of minutes. As you may want to use some other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our state-of-the-art platform will enable you to customize the software environment inside your account. You will be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some Internet sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based Internet site can work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can function without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the latter is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you could run websites with various requirements in the exact same account.
