APC, which stands for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script app, which can speed up a database-driven Internet site several times. Each time a PHP web page is accessed, the script pulls the site content that should be shown from a database, parses and compiles the code, and then the result is displayed to the visitor. While this is necessary for sites with regularly changing content, it's a complete waste of processing time and resources for an Internet site which doesn't change, for example an informational portal that shows the same content on a regular basis. When the pages for such a website are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them each time a website visitor loads them. As this saves the time to request content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, your Internet site will load significantly faster. APC is very useful in particular for scripts with large source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our advanced cloud platform, which means that you will be able to use it for your web applications regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you choose when you register. The module can be enabled from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to handle the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it will speed up your sites as it'll begin caching their code. In case you need to run sites with various system requirements or employ different web accelerators for some of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. In this way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a specific website without affecting the remaining sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP since our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting packages as it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account shall be created. In case you want to use this module, you'll be able to activate it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional within a couple of minutes. Since you may need to use alternative web accelerators for selected websites, our cutting-edge platform will enable you to personalize the software environment in your account. You can activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some websites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based website can work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can function without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you could run Internet sites with different requirements from the very same account.
