APC, which is short for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script app, that can boost a database-driven Internet site several times. When a PHP web page is opened, the script pulls the content that should be displayed from a database, parses and compiles the program code, and the result is displayed to the website visitor. While this is necessary for sites with frequently changing content, it's a total waste of processing time and system resources for an Internet site that does not change, like an informational portal which displays identical content on a regular basis. When the pages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them each time a website visitor loads them. Since this saves the time to get content from the database and to parse and compile the code, your website will load considerably quicker. APC is really efficient in particular for scripts with larger source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting

You will be able to use APC for your web apps with all of the web hosting packages that we provide because it is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform. Enabling it will take only a click inside the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our shared solutions and several minutes later it will start caching the program code of your apps. Our platform is rather flexible, so you'll be able to use different configurations depending on the system requirements of your scripts. For example, you will be able to activate APC for a couple of releases of PHP for the whole account and pick the version that each Internet site will use, or you could have the same version of PHP, but activate or deactivate APC just for particular Internet sites. You can do this by placing a php.ini file with a line of code in the domain or subdomain folder where you require the customized setup.

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 will be able to use it whatever the plan you choose. Activating 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 be able to take full advantage of it. Since you'll be able to work with several versions of PHP concurrently, you'll be able to modify the software environment for every single Internet site that you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with a couple of lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what version of PHP this specific Internet site will use and whether APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account as a whole, so you could run various scripts and employ various web accelerators for sites which are in the same account.
