APC, which is short for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script app, that can speed up a database-driven website several times. Every time a PHP web page is opened, the script pulls the website content that has to be shown from a database, parses and compiles the code, and the result is shown to the site visitor. While this is necessary for Internet sites with routinely changing content, it is a waste of processing time and system resources for a website that doesn't change, like an informational portal that shows the exact same content at all times. Once the web pages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them any time a user loads 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 efficient particularly for scripts with larger source code.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, which means that you will be able to use it for your web applications whatever the shared web hosting solution that you choose when you register. The module can be activated from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to control the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it will boost your sites since it'll start caching their code. If you want to run Internet sites with different system requirements or employ different web accelerators for any of them, you could customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not only for a particular site without affecting the other Internet sites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP as our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is installed on the state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created, so you'll be able to employ it whatever the package you get. Enabling the module is performed through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a mouse click, so you will not need any skills or earlier experience to be able to take advantage of it. As you will be able to employ several releases of PHP at the same time, you will be able to modify the software environment for every single site you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what version of PHP this specific website will use and if APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account as a whole, so you can run different scripts and employ various web accelerators for websites which are in the same account.
