APC, which is an acronym for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script app, that could boost a database-driven site several times. Every time a PHP page is accessed, the script pulls the website content that needs to be shown from a database, parses and compiles the program code, then the result is displayed to the site visitor. While this is necessary for websites with regularly changing content, it's a waste of processing time and resources for a website which doesn't change, such as an informational portal that shows the very same content all the time. Once the webpages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them any time a website visitor loads them. As this saves the time to collect content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, your Internet site will load a lot faster. APC is really effective especially for scripts with larger source code.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting
APC is provided with every single website hosting solution that we offer and you could activate it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your web apps. A few minutes later the framework will be active and you'll experience the considerably quicker loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. Since we provide several releases of PHP that could also be selected through Hepsia, you'll even be able to to employ APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP in the very same account. Our high tech cloud Internet hosting platform is very adaptable, so if you use an alternative web accelerator for any Internet site and it disturbs APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a certain site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to use APC for each script application which runs on your new semi-dedicated server because the module is already installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be generated. Activating or deactivating APC for the whole account requires a single click from the Hepsia Control Panel, but if necessary, you can use the module just for certain Internet sites. This is possible as a result of the flexibility of our cloud platform - different versions of PHP run on it simultaneously, so with a php.ini file placed in a website folder, you will be able to select what release will be used for this specific Internet site and whether APC should be enabled or disabled. Using such a file permits you to use settings that are different from the standard ones for your account, so you will be able to take full advantage of APC for a lot of scripts where the module makes a difference and not for others where you can employ some other type of web accelerator.
