APC, which is an acronym for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script app, that could speed up a database-driven Internet site several times. Every time a PHP page is opened, the script pulls the website content that should be shown from a database, parses and compiles the code, and then the result is shown to the site visitor. While this is necessary for Internet sites with regularly changing content, it's a complete waste of processing time and system resources for a website which doesn't change, for example an informational portal which displays the very same content on a regular basis. When the web pages for such a website are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them each time a user accesses them. As this saves the time to get content from the database and to parse and compile the code, the website will load a lot faster. APC is really efficient particularly for scripts with larger source code.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting
APC is available with each and every shared web hosting
plan that we offer and you could activate it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your applications. A few minutes later the framework will be working and you will experience the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. As we offer different releases of PHP which can also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP inside the same account. Our high tech cloud hosting platform is very flexible, so in case you use another web accelerator for any Internet site and it interferes with APC, you could activate or deactivate the latter for a specific site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers
APC is available with all semi-dedicated server
packages because it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. If you'd like to use this module, you will be able to activate it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational in a few minutes. As you may need to use alternative web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our cutting-edge platform will enable you to personalize the software environment in your account. You will be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it just for some Internet sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal™
-based site could work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do that is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you will be able to run Internet sites with different requirements from the very same account.
