APC, which means Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script app, that can boost a database-driven site several times. When a PHP page is accessed, the script pulls the site content which has to be shown from a database, parses and compiles the program code, and the result is displayed to the website visitor. While this is necessary for Internet sites with frequently changing content, it's a waste of processing time and resources for a website which doesn't change, for instance an informational portal which displays the very same content all the time. When the web pages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them every time a user loads them. Since this saves the time to request content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, the website will load considerably quicker. APC is very effective particularly for scripts with large source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, so you can use it for your applications whatever the website hosting solution that you pick when you register. The module can be activated from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to maintain the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it'll boost your websites because it'll begin caching their code. In case you want to run Internet sites with different system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for any of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not just for a particular website without affecting the remaining websites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP since our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use APC with our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and activating the framework is done with a click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you lack previous experience, you'll be able to use it to boost your sites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are made is compatible with multiple PHP versions, you will have flexibility with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you'll be able to use. It will take you just a click to enable APC for one or a couple of PHP versions and by using a php.ini file in the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings that are not the same as the ones for the account in general, you will be able to set what PHP version will be used and whether APC has to be allowed or not. In this way, one website could use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, and another one can use a different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
