APC, which is short for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script app, that can boost a database-driven Internet site several times. Any time a PHP web page is accessed, the script pulls the site content which should be displayed from a database, parses and compiles the code, and the result is shown to the visitor. While this is necessary for sites with frequently changing content, it's a waste of processing time and system resources for a site which does not change, such as an informational portal which displays the same content at all times. As soon as the pages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them every time a website visitor opens them. As this saves the time to collect content from the database and to parse and compile the code, your Internet site will load considerably quicker. APC is really useful in particular for scripts with large source code.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting
You can use APC with each web hosting
package that we provide since it's already installed on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our platform is quite flexible, you will be able to run sites with various requirements and decide whether they will use APC or not. For instance, you could activate APC only for one version of PHP or you can do the latter for several of the versions running on our platform. It's also possible to choose if all sites working with a given PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be active only for selected Internet sites and not for all Internet sites in the web hosting account. The last option is useful when you intend to employ a different web accelerator for several of your Internet sites. These customizations are performed effortlessly via a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers
APC is set up on the amazing cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server
accounts are made, so you will be able to use it irrespective of the plan you select. Enabling the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a click, so you will not need any skills or earlier experience in order to take full advantage of it. Since you will be able to use several versions of PHP concurrently, you'll be able to modify the software environment for each and every website which you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with a couple of lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what version of PHP this website will use and if APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account in general, so you can run different scripts and take advantage of different web accelerators for Internet sites which are in the same account.
