APC, which is short for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script application, that could boost a database-driven site several times. Each time a PHP web page is opened, the script pulls the site content which needs to be shown from a database, parses and compiles the program code, and the result is shown to the website visitor. While this is necessary for websites with regularly changing content, it is a total waste of processing time and resources for an Internet site that doesn't change, for instance an informational portal that displays the exact same content all the time. As soon as the pages for such a site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them each time a website visitor opens them. As this saves the time to request content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, your Internet site will load a lot quicker. APC is very efficient particularly for scripts with massive source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

APC is available with each shared hosting plan that we offer and you can activate it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your web applications. A couple of minutes later the framework will be working and you'll experience the quicker loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we provide different releases of PHP that could also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts which need different versions of PHP within the very same account. Our advanced cloud hosting platform is extremely flexible, so if you use some other web accelerator for any Internet site and it disturbs APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a certain site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting packages because it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. If you'd like to use this module, you will be able to activate it with a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational in a couple of minutes. Since you may need to use alternative web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our state-of-the-art platform will enable you to personalize the software environment inside your account. You will be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based website could work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the latter is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you could run Internet sites with various requirements inside the exact same account.
