Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and can speed up such an Internet site up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and each time a website visitor opens some webpage, the script hooks up to a database to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the website visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that is the case with websites that display identical content at all times, such actions result in excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it every time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database does not have to be accessed and the program code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled continuously, that consequently reduces the website loading time. The module could be really useful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.

These settings will have priority over those for the account as a whole, so you could run different scripts and take advantage of different web accelerators for Internet sites that are in the same account.
