APC, which stands for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script app, which can boost a database-driven website several times. Each time a PHP page is opened, the script pulls the content which has to be shown from a database, parses and compiles the code, then the result is displayed to the website visitor. While this is necessary for sites with routinely changing content, it's a waste of processing time and system resources for a website which doesn't change, like an informational portal which shows the same content on a regular basis. Once the web 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 Internet site will load significantly faster. APC is very effective especially for scripts with larger source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

APC is provided with each and every hosting package that we offer and you can activate it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your web apps. A couple of minutes later the framework will be working and you will experience the faster loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. Since we offer several releases of PHP that could also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP within the same account. Our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform is extremely flexible, so if you use an alternative web accelerator for any Internet site and it disturbs APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a specific site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is available with all semi-dedicated server plans because it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you'd like to use this module, you'll be able to enable it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational in a couple of minutes. Since you may need to use alternative web accelerators for selected sites, our leading-edge platform will permit you to personalize the software environment in your account. You will be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it just for some websites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based website can work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can work without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do that is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you will be able to run Internet sites with different requirements inside the same account.
