APC, which stands for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script application, which could boost a database-driven Internet site several times. Any time a PHP page is opened, the script pulls the website content that needs to be displayed 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 waste of processing time and resources for a site which doesn't change, like an informational portal that displays the same content all the time. Once the pages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them each time a website visitor accesses them. Since this saves the time to obtain content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, your Internet site will load significantly faster. APC is really helpful particularly for scripts with large source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting

You can use APC for your web apps with all of the cloud web hosting packages that we provide since it's pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform. Enabling it will take only a single click inside the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our shared plans and a couple of minutes later it will begin caching the program code of your software apps. Our platform is quite flexible, so you will be able to use different configurations depending on the system requirements of the scripts. For example, you'll be able to activate APC for a couple of versions of PHP for the whole account and pick the version that each site can use, or you could have the exact same version of PHP, but activate or deactivate APC only for particular websites. You can do this by placing a php.ini file with a line of program code in the domain or subdomain folder where you require the custom configuration.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated server solutions since it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account shall be created. In case you'd like to use this module, you will be able to activate it with a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational in a few minutes. As you may need to use alternative web accelerators for selected sites, our cutting-edge platform will permit 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 sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based Internet site can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can function without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you can run sites with different requirements in the very same account.
