APC, which is short for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script app, that could boost a database-driven site several times. Any time a PHP webpage is opened, the script pulls the content that has to be loaded from a database, parses and compiles the code, and the result is displayed to the visitor. While this is necessary for websites with constantly changing content, it's a waste of processing time and resources for a site which does not change, such as an informational portal that displays identical content at all times. As soon as the webpages for such a website are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them whenever a website visitor opens them. Since this saves the time to request content from the database and to parse and compile the code, the site will load significantly faster. APC is really helpful in particular for scripts with massive source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, which means that you'll be able to use it for your applications irrespective of the cloud hosting solution that you select when you register. The module can be activated through the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to control the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it'll boost your Internet sites because it'll begin caching their program code. If you need to run Internet sites with different system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for some of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not only for a certain site without affecting the other Internet 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 Servers

APC is set up on the state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are created, so you will be able to use it whatever the package you select. Enabling the module is performed from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a mouse click, so you won't need any skills or earlier experience in order to take advantage of it. Since you'll be able to employ several releases of PHP concurrently, you could customize the software environment for each and every website which you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with a couple of lines in it placed in a domain folder will enable you to set what release of PHP this particular website will use and whether APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account in general, so you can run different scripts and employ different web accelerators for websites which are in the same account.
