APC, which means Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script app, that can boost a database-driven website several times. Each time a PHP page is accessed, the script pulls the website content which needs to be shown from a database, parses and compiles the code, and then the result is shown to the visitor. While this is necessary for websites with frequently changing content, it's a waste of processing time and system resources for a website which does not change, like an informational portal which shows the same content all the time. Once the pages for such a website are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them every time a user loads them. As this saves the time to request content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, the site will load much quicker. APC is very efficient in particular for scripts with massive source code.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, therefore you'll be able to use it for your web applications irrespective of the web hosting package that you choose when you sign up. The module can be activated from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to control the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it'll boost your Internet sites since it'll start caching their code. In case you need to run websites with various system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for any of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. This way, 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 because our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is installed on the innovative cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created, so you could employ it regardless of the plan you choose. Enabling the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a mouse click, so you won't need any skills or previous experience in order to take full advantage of it. As you will be able to use different releases of PHP at the same time, you'll be able to customize the software environment for each and every Internet site that you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what release of PHP this site will use and whether APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account as a whole, so you can run different scripts and employ different web accelerators for Internet sites which are in the same account.
