APC, which stands for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script app, which could boost a database-driven website several times. Any time a PHP web page is opened, the script pulls the website content that has to be shown from a database, parses and compiles the code, and the result is displayed to the site visitor. While this is necessary for sites with frequently changing content, it's a waste of processing time and system resources for a website which does not change, like an informational portal which shows the same content all the time. Once the webpages for such a site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them whenever a user loads them. As this saves the time to get content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, the Internet site will load significantly quicker. APC is very effective particularly for scripts with massive source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, therefore you can use it for your applications whatever the hosting plan that you select when you sign up. The module can be enabled from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it'll boost your sites since it will begin caching their code. In case you would like to run sites with various system requirements or take advantage of specific web accelerators for some of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not only for a certain site without affecting the other sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is installed on the state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created, so you will be able to employ it regardless of the plan you pick. Enabling the module is performed from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a click, so you won't need any skills or prior experience to take advantage of it. Since you'll be able to use several versions of PHP simultaneously, you will be able to modify the software environment for each website which you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what release of PHP this particular site will use and if APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account as a whole, so you can run different scripts and use different web accelerators for websites that are in the same account.
