APC, which means Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script app, which could speed up a database-driven website several times. Every time a PHP web page is opened, the script pulls the website content that has to be shown from a database, parses and compiles the code, and then the result is displayed to the website visitor. While this is necessary for sites with routinely changing content, it's a waste of processing time and resources for a site that does not change, such as 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 every time a website visitor loads them. Since this saves the time to obtain content from the database and to parse and compile the code, your website will load significantly faster. APC is really effective especially for scripts with larger source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting

You'll be able to use APC for your web apps with any of the cloud website hosting packages that we provide as it's pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform. Activating it will take just a click in the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with our shared solutions and several minutes later it will begin caching the code of your software apps. Our platform is very flexible, so you'll be able to use different configurations determined by the system requirements of your scripts. For instance, you'll be able to activate APC for a couple of releases of PHP for the entire account and choose the version that each site can use, or you could have the same version of PHP, but enable or disable APC just for specified sites. This is done by putting a php.ini file with a line of program code inside the domain or subdomain folder where you need the customized configuration.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is available with all semi-dedicated server plans since it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account shall be created. In case you wish to use this module, you will be able to activate it with a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational in a few minutes. Since you may want to use alternative web accelerators for selected websites, our advanced platform will enable you to customize the software environment in your account. You will be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based website can work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work 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'll be able to run Internet sites with various requirements inside the exact same account.
