APC, which stands for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script app, which could boost a database-driven site several times. Any time a PHP webpage is accessed, the script pulls the content that has to be displayed from a database, parses and compiles the code, and then the result is shown to the website visitor. While this is necessary for websites with frequently changing content, it's a total waste of processing time and system resources for an Internet site which doesn't change, for example an informational portal which displays identical content all the time. Once the pages for such a website are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them every time a website visitor opens them. Since this saves the time to collect content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, the Internet site will load much faster. APC is very effective particularly for scripts with massive source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting

APC is available with every single cloud web hosting plan that we offer and you could activate it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you want to use it for your applications. Several minutes later the framework will be working and you'll experience the faster loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. As we offer several releases of PHP that could also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP inside the very same account. Our next generation cloud web hosting platform is very flexible, so in case you use some other web accelerator for any Internet site and it disrupts APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a particular site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.
