APC, which is an acronym for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script application, which could speed up a database-driven Internet site several times. Each time a PHP web page is opened, the script pulls the website content which needs to 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's a waste of processing time and resources for an Internet site which does not change, for instance an informational portal that displays the same content on a regular basis. As soon as the pages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them whenever a visitor opens them. Since this saves the time to get content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, your website will load a lot quicker. APC is very helpful in particular for scripts with larger source code.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, so you'll be able to use it for your applications whatever the shared hosting solution that you pick when you sign up. The module can be activated through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to handle the shared accounts and only a few minutes later it will boost your websites as it'll start caching their code. If you need 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. In this way, you could enable or disable APC not only for a certain website without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is set up on the amazing cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are made, so you will be able to use it whatever the package you get. Enabling the module is performed through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a mouse click, so you won't need any skills or previous experience to be able to take advantage of it. As you will be able to work with several releases of PHP at the same time, you could customize the software environment for each and every site you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with a couple of lines in it placed in a domain folder will permit you to set what version of PHP this particular site will use and whether APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account as a whole, so you could run various scripts and use various web accelerators for Internet sites which are in the same account.
