APC, which means Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script application, that can boost a database-driven site several times. Every time a PHP page is opened, the script pulls the site content which has to be loaded from a database, parses and compiles the program code, and the result is displayed to the visitor. While this is necessary for websites with constantly changing content, it is a complete waste of processing time and resources for a website which doesn't change, like an informational portal which displays the same content at all times. As soon as the webpages for such a site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them every time a visitor loads them. Since this saves the time to collect content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, your Internet site will load much faster. APC is very useful especially for scripts with large source code.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, which means that you'll be able to use it for your applications regardless of the shared web hosting solution that you pick when you register. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to maintain the shared accounts and just several minutes later it'll speed up your Internet sites since it'll begin caching their code. In case you wish to run sites with various system requirements or use specific web accelerators for any of them, you could customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not only for a particular site without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP as our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting packages because it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account shall be created. In case you'd like to use this module, you'll be able to enable it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional in a couple of minutes. As you may want to use other 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 releases of PHP or use it just for some Internet sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based website could work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can function without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do that is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you'll be able to run websites with different requirements in the same account.
