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 boost a database-driven Internet site several times. Any time a PHP page is opened, the script pulls the content which needs to be displayed from a database, parses and compiles the code, then the result is displayed to the website visitor. While this is necessary for websites with regularly changing content, it's a waste of processing time and resources for a site which doesn't change, for instance an informational portal which shows the exact same content on a regular basis. When the web pages for such a site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them each time a user opens them. Since this saves the time to request content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, the Internet site will load considerably quicker. APC is really efficient particularly for scripts with large source code.

APC is provided with each web hosting plan that we offer and you could activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your web apps. Several minutes later the framework will be active and you'll notice the faster loading speed of your database-driven sites. Since we offer different releases of PHP that can also be selected through Hepsia, you'll even be able to to use APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP inside the same account. Our high tech cloud web hosting platform is very adaptable, so in case you use another web accelerator for any Internet site and it disturbs APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a certain 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 solutions because it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you want to use this module, you will be able to enable it with a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional within a few minutes. As you may need to use some other web accelerators for selected websites, our cutting-edge platform will enable you to personalize the software environment in your account. You will be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based site could work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can function without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you could run Internet sites with different requirements inside the same account.
