APC, which stands for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script app, that can speed up a database-driven site several times. When a PHP webpage is opened, the script pulls the website content that should be loaded from a database, parses and compiles the program code, then the result is displayed to the website visitor. While this is necessary for sites with routinely changing content, it is a complete waste of processing time and system resources for a site that doesn't change, for example an informational portal which displays the same content at all times. As soon as the webpages for such a website are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them whenever a website visitor opens them. Since this saves the time to get content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, your website will load significantly faster. APC is really helpful especially for scripts with large source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, which means that you'll be able to use it for your applications whatever the website hosting plan that you pick when you register. The module can be activated through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to maintain the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it'll boost your websites because it will start caching their code. In case you need to run sites with different system requirements or employ different web accelerators for any of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. In this way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a particular site without affecting the other Internet sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP because our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.
