APC, which means Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script app, that can boost a database-driven Internet site several times. Every time a PHP web page is opened, the script pulls the site content which should be displayed from a database, parses and compiles the program code, and the result is displayed to the site visitor. While this is necessary for Internet sites with frequently changing content, it is a total waste of processing time and resources for an Internet site that doesn't change, like an informational portal which displays identical content on a regular basis. Once the web pages for such a site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them any time a visitor accesses them. As this saves the time to request content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, the website will load a lot faster. APC is really efficient especially for scripts with large source code.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, therefore you will be able to use it for your web applications whatever the cloud hosting plan that you choose when you sign up. The module can be enabled through the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it'll boost your websites because it will begin caching their program code. If you want to run Internet sites with different system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for any of them, you can customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. This way, you could enable or disable APC not only for a specific site without affecting the remaining 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 available with all semi-dedicated hosting solutions since it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account shall be created. If you would like to use this module, you can activate it with a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional in a couple of minutes. Since you may want to use other web accelerators for selected sites, our outstanding platform will allow you to customize the software environment inside your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it only for some websites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based website can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website could work without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the latter is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you could run Internet sites with different requirements inside the very same account.
