APC, which is short for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script app, that could speed up a database-driven site several times. Any time a PHP page is opened, the script pulls the content that should be loaded from a database, parses and compiles the program code, then the result is shown to the visitor. While this is necessary for sites with routinely changing content, it is a waste of processing time and resources for a website that doesn't change, such as an informational portal which displays the same content all the time. As soon as the web pages for such a website are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them whenever a visitor loads them. Since this saves the time to obtain content from the database and to parse and compile the code, the site will load much faster. APC is really efficient especially for scripts with larger source code.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, therefore you will be able to use it for your applications irrespective of the shared website hosting
solution that you select when you register. The module can be enabled through the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to take care of the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it'll boost your Internet sites since it'll begin caching their program code. In case you need to run sites with different system requirements or take advantage of different web accelerators for any of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. In this way, you could enable or disable APC not just for a certain site without affecting the other Internet sites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting
plans since it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you would like to use this module, you will be able to activate it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational within a couple of minutes. Since you may need to use alternative web accelerators for selected websites, our outstanding platform will allow you to customize the software environment in your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it only for some websites and not for others. For example, a Drupal™
-based site can function with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can work without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you can run sites with different requirements inside the same account.
