APC, which means Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script application, that could boost a database-driven site several times. Each time a PHP page is accessed, the script pulls the site content that should be displayed from a database, parses and compiles the code, and then the result is displayed to the site visitor. While this is necessary for sites with routinely changing content, it is a total waste of processing time and system resources for an Internet site which doesn't change, for instance an informational portal that shows the very same content on a regular basis. As soon as the web pages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them whenever a user accesses them. Since this saves the time to collect content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, the Internet site will load a lot quicker. APC is really useful particularly for scripts with larger source code.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our state-of-the-art cloud platform, therefore you can use it for your web applications regardless of the cloud website hosting plan that you select when you sign up. The module can be enabled from the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to manage the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it will boost your sites because it will start caching their code. If you would like to run sites with various system requirements or employ different web accelerators for some of them, you can customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. In this way, you could enable or disable APC not just for a specific site without affecting the other sites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP as our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting plans as it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you want to use this module, you can activate it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional within a few minutes. As you may need to use alternative web accelerators for selected sites, our advanced platform will permit you to personalize the software environment in your account. You can activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some Internet sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based Internet site could work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can function without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you will be able to run websites with various requirements inside the exact same account.
