APC, which stands for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script app, which could boost a database-driven website several times. Each time a PHP webpage is opened, the script pulls the content which should be displayed from a database, parses and compiles the program code, and the result is displayed to the site visitor. While this is necessary for Internet sites with frequently changing content, it's a waste of processing time and system resources for an Internet site which doesn't change, like an informational portal which shows the very same content on a regular basis. When the pages for such a website are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them each time a user accesses them. Since this saves the time to get content from the database and to parse and compile the code, your Internet site will load considerably faster. APC is very efficient particularly for scripts with massive source code.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, which means that you'll be able to use it for your web applications irrespective of the website hosting package that you choose when you sign up. The module can be activated from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to handle the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it will boost your sites because it'll begin caching their code. In case you would like to run websites with different system requirements or take advantage of specific web accelerators for any of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. This way, you could enable or disable APC not only for a specific site without affecting the other Internet sites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP because our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers
APC is installed on the amazing cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are created, so you will be able to use it whatever the package you choose. Enabling the module is performed from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a mouse click, so you will not need any skills or earlier experience to be able to take advantage of it. As you'll be able to work with several releases of PHP at once, you'll be able to modify the software environment for every single Internet site which you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will permit you to set what version of PHP this particular website will use and if APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account in general, so you could run different scripts and employ different web accelerators for websites that are in the same account.
