APC, which stands for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script application, that could boost a database-driven Internet site several times. Every time a PHP web page is opened, the script pulls the website content that has to be loaded from a database, parses and compiles the program code, then the result is displayed to the website visitor. While this is necessary for sites with regularly changing content, it's a total waste of processing time and system resources for a site that does not change, like an informational portal which shows the exact same content all the time. Once the pages for such a website are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them every time a visitor accesses them. As this saves the time to get content from the database and to parse and compile the code, your Internet site will load much faster. APC is really efficient in particular for scripts with larger source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting

APC is provided with each shared website hosting package that we offer and you can activate it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your web applications. A couple of minutes later the framework will be active and you'll experience the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven websites. As we provide several versions of PHP which could also be selected through Hepsia, you'll even be able to to use APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP in the same account. Our cutting-edge cloud Internet hosting platform is very adaptable, so if you use an alternative web accelerator for any website and it disrupts APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a specific site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is available with all semi-dedicated server packages since it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. If you wish to use this module, you can activate it with a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional in a couple of minutes. As you may want to use some other web accelerators for selected sites, our state-of-the-art platform will permit you to customize the software environment in your account. You'll 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 can function with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you can run websites with various requirements in the very same account.
