APC, which is short for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script application, which can speed up a database-driven site several times. Every time a PHP web page is opened, the script pulls the website content that should be displayed from a database, parses and compiles the program code, and the result is shown to the site visitor. While this is necessary for websites with routinely changing content, it is a waste of processing time and system resources for a website that doesn't change, such as an informational portal that displays identical content all the time. When the webpages for such a website are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them whenever a user accesses them. As this saves the time to request content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, the website will load a lot quicker. APC is very useful particularly for scripts with larger source code.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, therefore you can use it for your web applications irrespective of the shared website hosting plan that you select when you register. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to maintain the shared accounts and just several minutes later it'll boost your websites since it will start caching their program code. In case you would like to run websites with different system requirements or take advantage of different web accelerators for any of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. In this way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a certain website without affecting the remaining websites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is installed on the innovative cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created, so you'll be able to employ it irrespective of the plan you get. Activating the module is performed through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a mouse click, so you will not need any skills or previous experience to be able to take advantage of it. As you'll be able to employ different releases of PHP at once, you could modify the software environment for every single Internet site which you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with a couple of lines in it placed in a domain folder will enable you to set what release of PHP this specific Internet site will use and if APC needs to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account in general, so you could run various scripts and use various web accelerators for websites which are in the same account.
