APC, which means Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script application, that can speed up a database-driven Internet site several times. Every time a PHP web page is opened, the script pulls the site content that needs to be shown from a database, parses and compiles the code, and the result is shown to the visitor. While this is necessary for Internet sites with routinely changing content, it is a total waste of processing time and system resources for an Internet site which does not change, like an informational portal that displays the same content on a regular basis. Once the pages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them each time a visitor loads them. Since this saves the time to obtain content from the database and to parse and compile the code, the Internet site will load much quicker. APC is very efficient in particular for scripts with larger source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, therefore you will be able to use it for your applications whatever the cloud hosting package that you select when you register. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to maintain the shared accounts and only several minutes later it will boost your Internet sites as it'll start caching their code. In case you would like to run websites with different system requirements or employ different web accelerators for some of them, you can customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. In this way, you could enable or disable APC not only for a certain website without affecting the remaining Internet sites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP because our platform supports multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting solutions since it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. If you would like to use this module, you'll 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 want to use other web accelerators for selected websites, our leading-edge platform will enable you to personalize the software environment in 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 site can function with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can work without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the latter is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you'll be able to run websites with different requirements from the same account.
