APC, which means Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script application, that can boost a database-driven site several times. Each time a PHP page is opened, the script pulls the site content that needs to be shown from a database, parses and compiles the code, then the result is displayed to the site visitor. While this is necessary for sites with regularly changing content, it is a total waste of processing time and system resources for an Internet site which does not change, for example an informational portal which displays identical content at all times. When the pages for such a website are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them each time a user accesses them. Since this saves the time to get content from the database and to parse and compile the code, the site will load a lot faster. APC is very useful especially for scripts with massive source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, so you'll be able to use it for your web applications regardless of the cloud hosting package that you pick when you register. The module can be activated from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it'll speed up your sites since it'll begin caching their program code. In case you wish to run Internet sites with various system requirements or use specific web accelerators for some of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not only for a certain site without affecting the other Internet sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.

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 wish to use this module, you will be able to activate it with a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational in a couple of minutes. Since you may need to use some other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our leading-edge platform will permit 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 example, a Drupal-based website could work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the latter is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you can run Internet sites with different requirements from the same account.
