APC, which stands for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script app, which can speed up a database-driven site several times. Any time a PHP page is opened, the script pulls the site content which should be displayed from a database, parses and compiles the code, and then the result is displayed to the visitor. While this is necessary for websites with constantly changing content, it's a total waste of processing time and resources for a website that doesn't change, for instance an informational portal which shows the very same content on a regular basis. Once the web pages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them whenever a user opens them. Since this saves the time to obtain content from the database and to parse and compile the code, your website will load significantly quicker. APC is really useful particularly for scripts with large source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting

APC is provided with each and every web hosting package that we offer and you could activate it with just a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your web apps. A few minutes later the framework will be active and you will notice the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we provide different releases of PHP that can also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP in the same account. Our high tech cloud web hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so if you use a different web accelerator for any Internet site and it interferes with APC, you could activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a selected site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can use APC with all of our semi-dedicated server solutions and activating the framework is done with a click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, so even if you have no prior experience, you could use it in order to quicken your websites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are set up supports multiple PHP versions, you will have freedom with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you can employ. It will take you only a click to activate APC for one or a couple of PHP releases and by using a php.ini file in the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are not the same as the ones for the account in general, you can set what PHP version will be used and whether APC has to be allowed or not. This way, one Internet site may use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, whereas another one could use another accelerator and PHP 5.5.
