APC, which is short for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script app, that could speed up a database-driven Internet site several times. Each time a PHP webpage is opened, the script pulls the website content that has to be loaded from a database, parses and compiles the code, and then the result is shown to the visitor. While this is necessary for Internet sites with regularly changing content, it is a complete waste of processing time and resources for a website which doesn't change, like an informational portal which shows the very same content all the time. When the web pages for such a website are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them whenever a visitor opens them. Since this saves the time to collect content from the database and to parse and compile the code, the site will load a lot quicker. APC is really efficient particularly for scripts with massive source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting

APC is available with each shared web hosting plan that we offer and you can enable it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you want to use it for your web applications. Several minutes later the framework will be working and you'll experience the faster loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we offer several versions of PHP which could also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts which need different versions of PHP within the very same account. Our high tech cloud web hosting platform is very adaptable, so if you use a different web accelerator for any Internet site and it interferes with APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a particular site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use APC with our semi-dedicated hosting plans and activating the framework is done with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you have no prior experience, you will be able to use it in order to accelerate your websites. As the cloud 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 use. It will take you only a click to activate APC for one or a couple of PHP versions and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are different from the ones for the account as a whole, you will be able to set what PHP release will be used and whether APC needs to be allowed or not. This way, one site may use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, while another one can use another accelerator and PHP 5.5.
