APC, which means 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. When a PHP webpage is opened, the script pulls the site content which should be displayed from a database, parses and compiles the code, and the result is shown to the site visitor. While this is necessary for sites with regularly changing content, it's a total waste of processing time and system resources for a website that does not change, such as an informational portal which shows the same content at all times. Once the pages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them whenever a visitor accesses them. As this saves the time to get content from the database and to parse and compile the code, your website will load considerably faster. APC is really helpful especially for scripts with large source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting

APC is provided with each cloud website hosting package that we offer and you could enable it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your web applications. A few minutes later the framework will be working and you will be able to take advantage of the quicker loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. As we offer several versions of PHP which can also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP within the same account. Our high tech cloud hosting platform is very flexible, so in case you use another web accelerator for any website and it disrupts APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a certain site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is set up on the amazing cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created, so you could employ it regardless of the plan you choose. Enabling the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a mouse click, so you will not need any skills or prior experience to take full advantage of it. Since you will be able to work with different versions of PHP concurrently, you'll be able to customize the software environment for every single Internet site that you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will enable you to set what version of PHP this particular website will use and whether APC needs to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account as a whole, so you can run various scripts and employ different web accelerators for websites which are in the same account.
