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 website several times. Each time a PHP webpage is accessed, the script pulls the site content which has to be displayed from a database, parses and compiles the program code, then the result is shown to the website visitor. While this is necessary for Internet sites with frequently changing content, it's a total waste of processing time and system resources for a site which does not change, like an informational portal that shows identical content all the time. When the web pages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them each time a visitor loads them. As this saves the time to get content from the database and to parse and compile the code, the Internet site will load a lot quicker. APC is very efficient especially for scripts with massive source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, therefore you can use it for your web applications regardless of the shared website hosting package that you select when you register. The module can be enabled from the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to control the shared accounts and just several minutes later it will speed up your websites since it'll begin caching their code. If you would like to run Internet sites with different system requirements or employ different web accelerators for any of them, you could customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. In this way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a particular site without affecting the other sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP since our platform supports multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated server solutions as it is 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 enable it with just a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational within a few minutes. As you may want to use alternative web accelerators for selected websites, our outstanding platform will enable you to personalize the software environment in your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it only for some Internet sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based Internet site can work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the latter is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you could run sites with different requirements in the very same account.
