APC, which is short for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script application, which can boost a database-driven website several times. When a PHP webpage is accessed, the script pulls the content which should be loaded from a database, parses and compiles the code, and then the result is displayed to the visitor. While this is necessary for websites with frequently changing content, it's a waste of processing time and resources for a site which doesn't change, such as an informational portal that displays the exact same content all the time. As soon as the webpages for such a website are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them every time a website visitor opens them. As this saves the time to get content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, the site will load a lot quicker. APC is very useful particularly for scripts with massive source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting

You can use APC with each and every web hosting plan that we offer because it is already set up on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our system is quite flexible, you will be able to run websites with various requirements and decide whether they will work with APC or not. For example, you can activate APC only for one version of PHP or you can do the latter for several of the releases running on our platform. You can also select if all websites working with a certain PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be active just for selected Internet sites and not for all sites in the website hosting account. The last option is useful if you need to employ a different web accelerator for some of your Internet sites. These customizations are done without difficulty via a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is available with all semi-dedicated server packages as it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you would like to use this module, you can enable it with just a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional within a few minutes. Since you may need to use some other web accelerators for selected websites, our outstanding platform will enable 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 Internet sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based site can work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can function without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do that is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you could run sites with different requirements from the very same account.
