APC, which is an acronym 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 website several times. When a PHP web page is opened, the script pulls the website content that should be loaded from a database, parses and compiles the code, and the result is shown to the visitor. While this is necessary for websites with frequently changing content, it is a complete waste of processing time and resources for an Internet site that does not change, for example an informational portal that displays identical content all the time. Once the webpages for such a website are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them each time a user accesses them. As this saves the time to request content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, your Internet site will load significantly faster. APC is very helpful especially for scripts with large source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, so you will be able to use it for your applications whatever the shared web hosting package that you pick when you join us. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to handle the shared accounts and only a few minutes later it'll speed up your Internet sites because it will begin caching their code. If you want to run sites with different system requirements or use specific web accelerators for any of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not just for a particular Internet site without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.
