APC, which stands for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script app, which can speed up a database-driven site several times. When a PHP web page is accessed, the script pulls the content that should be shown from a database, parses and compiles the code, then the result is displayed to the site visitor. While this is necessary for websites with constantly changing content, it's a total waste of processing time and resources for a site which does not change, for example an informational portal that displays the exact same content all the time. Once the pages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them whenever a user opens them. As this saves the time to collect content from the database and to parse and compile the code, the Internet site will load significantly quicker. APC is very efficient especially for scripts with large source code.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, therefore you'll be able to use it for your web applications whatever the cloud web hosting
solution that you select when you register. The module can be activated from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to take care of the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it will speed up your Internet sites since it will start caching their code. In case you want to run Internet sites with different system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for any of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. Thus, you could enable or disable APC not only for a particular website 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
packages as it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. If you want to use this module, you'll be able to enable it with just a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational within a couple of minutes. Since you may need to use some other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our outstanding platform will enable you to customize the software environment inside your account. You can activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it just for some sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal™
-based site can work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the latter is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you can run Internet sites with different requirements from the exact same account.
