APC, which stands for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script application, that could speed up a database-driven site several times. Each time a PHP page is accessed, the script pulls the website content that should 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 Internet sites with routinely changing content, it's a complete waste of processing time and system resources for an Internet site which does not change, for example an informational portal that shows the same content all the time. Once the web pages for such a site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them any time a website visitor accesses them. As this saves the time to obtain content from the database and to parse and compile the code, your website will load significantly faster. APC is really useful especially for scripts with larger source code.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is set up on the amazing cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are made, so you'll be able to employ it irrespective of the package you pick. Enabling the module is done through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a click, so you won't need any skills or prior experience in order to take advantage of it. As you will be able to work with different releases of PHP at the same time, you will be able to customize the software environment for every single site you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with a couple of lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what version of PHP this Internet site will use and whether APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account as a whole, so you could run various scripts and take advantage of various web accelerators for sites which are in the same account.
