APC, which stands for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script app, that can speed up a database-driven Internet site several times. Any time a PHP webpage is opened, the script pulls the content which has to be shown from a database, parses and compiles the code, and the result is shown to the website visitor. While this is necessary for sites with routinely changing content, it's a total waste of processing time and system resources for a website which doesn't change, for instance an informational portal that displays the exact same content at all times. When the pages for such a site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them any time a user opens them. As this saves the time to collect content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, the site will load much quicker. APC is really effective especially for scripts with large source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting

You will be able to employ APC for your web applications with all of the web hosting plans that we offer as it's pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform. Enabling it will take only a single click in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our shared plans and several minutes later it will start caching the code of your applications. Our platform is quite flexible, so you'll be able to use different configurations based on the system requirements of the scripts. For example, you will be able to activate APC for several versions of PHP for the entire account and select the version that each website can use, or you could have the same version of PHP, but activate or deactivate APC just for particular sites. This is done by placing a php.ini file with a line of program code inside the domain or subdomain folder where you require the customized setup.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting plans as it is pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. If you'd like to use this module, you will be able to enable it with just a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational in a couple of minutes. Since you may want to use other web accelerators for selected sites, our state-of-the-art platform will allow you to customize the software environment in your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it just for some sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based site 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 that is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you'll be able to run Internet sites with different requirements inside the very same account.
