APC, which is short for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script app, which could speed up a database-driven Internet site several times. Every time a PHP web page is opened, the script pulls the site content that should be loaded from a database, parses and compiles the code, then the result is shown to the website visitor. While this is necessary for websites with constantly changing content, it's a waste of processing time and system resources for a website which does not change, for example an informational portal which displays the exact same content on a regular basis. Once the web pages for such a website are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them each time a visitor opens them. Since this saves the time to get content from the database and to parse and compile the code, the website will load significantly quicker. APC is very efficient especially for scripts with larger source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

APC is provided with each hosting package that we offer and you can activate it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you want to use it for your web apps. A few minutes later the framework will be active and you'll notice the considerably quicker loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we provide different releases of PHP that could also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts which need different versions of PHP in the very same account. Our advanced cloud hosting platform is extremely flexible, so in case you use an alternative web accelerator for any Internet site and it disturbs APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a specific 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 state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are made, so you will be able to use it irrespective of the package you select. Activating the module is performed through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a mouse click, so you won't need any skills or prior experience to be able to take full advantage of it. As you'll be able to work with different releases of PHP at once, you could customize the software environment for every single 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 allow you to set what version of PHP this 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 could run various scripts and use various web accelerators for Internet sites that are in the same account.
