APC, which means 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. When a PHP webpage is accessed, the script pulls the website content which has to be loaded from a database, parses and compiles the code, then the result is shown to the visitor. While this is necessary for Internet sites with routinely changing content, it's a waste of processing time and resources for a website which doesn't change, like an informational portal that displays the very same content all the time. Once the webpages for such a website are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them whenever a visitor loads them. As this saves the time to collect content from the database and to parse and compile the code, the site will load much quicker. APC is very efficient particularly for scripts with larger source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

You'll be able to employ APC for your web applications with any of the website hosting packages that we provide as it is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform. Turning it on will take only a mouse click inside the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our shared solutions and a couple of minutes later it will begin caching the program code of your software applications. Our platform is extremely flexible, so you will be able to use different configurations based on the system requirements of your scripts. For instance, you'll be able to activate APC for a couple of versions of PHP for the entire account and select the version that each Internet site can use, or you can have the same version of PHP, but activate or deactivate APC just for specified sites. 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 Hosting

APC is installed 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 regardless of the plan you pick. Activating the module is done through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a mouse click, so you will not need any skills or earlier experience to be able to take advantage of it. As you'll be able to use different releases of PHP simultaneously, you will be able to modify the software environment for each and every site 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 specific website will use and whether APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account in general, so you can run various scripts and take advantage of various web accelerators for websites that are in the same account.
