APC, which means Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script app, that can boost a database-driven Internet site several times. Any time a PHP page is accessed, the script pulls the website content that needs to be shown from a database, parses and compiles the program code, and then the result is shown to the website visitor. While this is necessary for websites with regularly changing content, it's a complete waste of processing time and resources for an Internet site which does not change, for instance an informational portal that shows the very same content all the time. As soon as the web pages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them any time a user opens them. As this saves the time to collect content from the database and to parse and compile the code, your Internet site will load significantly faster. APC is very effective particularly for scripts with large source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

You will be able to use APC for your web apps with all of the website hosting packages that we provide as it's pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform. Enabling it will take only a single click in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our shared solutions and a couple of minutes later it'll begin caching the program code of your software apps. Our platform is rather flexible, so you will be able to use several configurations depending on the system requirements of the scripts. For instance, you'll be able to activate APC for a couple of releases of PHP for the whole account and choose the version that each Internet site will use, or you could have the very same version of PHP, but enable or disable APC only for particular websites. You can do this by putting a php.ini file with a line of code inside the domain or subdomain folder where you need the customized setup.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is installed on the amazing cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are made, so you will be able to use it irrespective of the package you choose. Enabling the module is performed from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a click, so you won't need any skills or previous experience to be able to take full advantage of it. As you will be able to use several releases of PHP concurrently, you'll be able to customize the software environment for each and every website that you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will enable you to set what release of PHP this Internet site will use and whether APC needs to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account as a whole, so you can run various scripts and use various web accelerators for Internet sites which are in the same account.
