APC, which means Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script app, which can boost a database-driven Internet site several times. Any time a PHP web page is opened, the script pulls the content which should be shown from a database, parses and compiles the code, and then the result is shown to the visitor. While this is necessary for sites with regularly changing content, it is a waste of processing time and system resources for an Internet site which doesn't change, like an informational portal which shows identical content all the time. Once the webpages for such a website are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them each time a visitor loads them. As this saves the time to obtain content from the database and to parse and compile the code, your Internet site will load considerably quicker. APC is very useful especially for scripts with massive source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

You can use APC with each and every shared hosting package that we provide because it is already installed on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our platform is quite flexible, you'll be able to run Internet sites with various requirements and decide if they will work with APC or not. For example, you could activate APC only for a single release of PHP or you can do the latter for several of the versions that run on the platform. In addition, you can select if all Internet sites working with a certain PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be active only for selected Internet sites and not for all websites in the website hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful if you wish to employ a different web accelerator for several of your websites. These customizations are performed without difficulty via a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is installed on the innovative cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created, so you'll be able to use it irrespective of the plan you select. Enabling the module is performed through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a mouse click, so you will not need any skills or prior experience to take advantage of it. Since you'll be able to work with different releases of PHP simultaneously, you'll be able to modify the software environment for each and every website which you host in the account if needed. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what version of PHP this website will use and if APC needs to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account as a whole, so you can run various scripts and take advantage of different web accelerators for Internet sites which are in the same account.
