APC, which stands for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script application, that can boost a database-driven Internet site several times. Each time a PHP page is accessed, the script pulls the content that needs to be displayed from a database, parses and compiles the code, and then the result is shown to the website visitor. While this is necessary for sites with routinely changing content, it's a complete waste of processing time and system resources for a website that does not change, such as an informational portal which displays the same content at all times. When the webpages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them every time a visitor opens them. Since this saves the time to collect content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, your Internet site will load a lot quicker. APC is really helpful in particular for scripts with large source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

You can use APC with every single cloud hosting plan that we provide because it's already installed on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our system is rather flexible, you will be able to run sites with different requirements and decide if they will work with APC or not. For example, you can activate APC only for a single version of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the releases running on the platform. You can also select if all websites using a given PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be active only for selected websites and not for all websites in the website hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful if you want to employ a different web accelerator for several of your websites. These customizations are performed without any difficulty through a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated server plans because it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account shall be created. In case you wish to use this module, you can enable it with a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational within a few minutes. Since you may need to use other web accelerators for selected websites, our state-of-the-art platform will enable you to personalize the software environment in your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based site can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can work without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you can run Internet sites with different requirements inside the exact same account.
