APC, which stands for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script application, that could boost a database-driven website several times. Each time a PHP webpage is opened, the script pulls the content which should be displayed from a database, parses and compiles the program code, and the result is shown to the site visitor. While this is necessary for websites with frequently changing content, it's a complete waste of processing time and system resources for a website which does not change, such as an informational portal which displays the very same content on a regular basis. As soon as the webpages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them any time a website visitor accesses them. Since 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 really efficient particularly 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 applications regardless of the hosting solution that you choose when you join us. The module can be activated through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to control the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it will boost your sites because it'll start caching their code. In case you would like to run websites with various system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for some of them, you could customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. In this way, you can enable or disable APC not only for a specific Internet site without affecting the other sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use APC with all our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and activating this framework is done with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel, so even if you have no previous experience, you can use it to quicken your websites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are set up supports multiple PHP releases, you'll have flexibility regarding the scripts and web accelerators you can employ. It will take you just a click to activate APC for one or a couple of PHP releases and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings that are not the same as the ones for the account in general, you could set what PHP version will be used and whether APC needs to be enabled or not. This way, one site can use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, and another one can use a different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
