APC (PHP Opcode Cache)
Find out what APC (PHP Opcode Cache) is and how it can impact the PHP performance inside your web hosting account.
APC, which stands for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script application, which can boost a database-driven Internet site several times. When a PHP page is accessed, the script pulls the content which needs to be shown from a database, parses and compiles the program code, and the result is shown to the visitor. While this is necessary for Internet sites with frequently changing content, it is a complete waste of processing time and system resources for a site which doesn't change, for example an informational portal which displays the exact same content on a regular basis. When the webpages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them every time a user accesses them. As this saves the time to obtain content from the database and to parse and compile the code, your website will load considerably quicker. APC is really useful particularly for scripts with larger source code.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting
APC is provided with every single shared hosting
package that we offer and you could enable it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your applications. A few minutes later the framework will be active and you will experience the quicker loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we offer different versions of PHP which can also be selected through Hepsia, you'll even be able to to employ APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP in the same account. Our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform is very adaptable, so if you use a different web accelerator for any Internet site and it disrupts APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a selected 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 for each and every script application which runs on your new semi-dedicated hosting
because the module is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be made. Activating or deactivating APC for the entire account takes a single click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, but if necessary, you could use the module only for certain Internet sites. This is possible as a result of the versatility of our cloud platform - different versions of PHP run on it concurrently, so with a php.ini file placed in a website folder, you will be able to select what release will be used for this particular website and whether APC should be enabled or disabled. Employing such a file allows you to use settings which are different from the standard ones for the account, so you'll be able to take advantage of APC for many scripts where the module makes a difference and not for others where you could take advantage of some other kind of web accelerator.
