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 boost a database-driven site several times. Any time a PHP page is opened, the script pulls the website content which should be displayed from a database, parses and compiles the code, then the result is displayed to the visitor. While this is necessary for websites with regularly changing content, it's a waste of processing time and system resources for an Internet site which does not change, for example an informational portal that displays identical content all the time. When the pages for such a site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them every time a user accesses them. As this saves the time to get content from the database and to parse and compile the code, the website will load a lot quicker. APC is really effective particularly for scripts with larger source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our state-of-the-art cloud platform, which means that you'll be able to use it for your web applications regardless of the website hosting package that you choose when you register. The module can be enabled from the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to take care of the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it'll speed up your sites since it'll start caching their code. In case you need to run websites with various system requirements or use specific web accelerators for some of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not only for a certain site without affecting the other Internet sites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.
