APC, which is short for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script app, which can boost a database-driven site several times. When a PHP webpage is accessed, the script pulls the site content which has to be displayed from a database, parses and compiles the code, then the result is shown to the site visitor. While this is necessary for websites with constantly changing content, it is a waste of processing time and system resources for an Internet site which doesn't change, like an informational portal that displays the very same content all the time. When the pages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them every time a user opens them. Since this saves the time to collect content from the database and to parse and compile the code, the website will load considerably faster. APC is very efficient particularly for scripts with massive source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

APC is available with every single website hosting plan that we offer and you can activate it with just a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your web apps. A couple of minutes later the framework will be working and you will notice the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we offer several releases of PHP that could also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP in the same account. Our advanced cloud hosting platform is extremely flexible, so if you use another web accelerator for any Internet site and it disrupts APC, you'll 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

You can use APC for every script application which runs on your new semi-dedicated hosting because the module is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be created. Activating or deactivating APC for the whole account requires one click from the Hepsia Control Panel, but if necessary, you can use the module just for particular sites. This is possible due to the versatility of our cloud platform - multiple versions of PHP run on it simultaneously, so with a php.ini file placed in a website folder, you will be able to select what release will be used for this specific website and whether APC has to be enabled or disabled. Using such a file permits you to use settings that are different from the standard ones for the account, so you'll be able to take advantage of APC for many scripts where the module makes a difference and not for others where you can take advantage of a different kind of web accelerator.
