Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and will accelerate such an Internet site as much as 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a visitor opens a webpage, the script links to a database in order to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the guest. In case the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with websites that show identical content all the time, such actions result in needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it every time visitors browse a website, so the database does not need to be accessed and the code does not need to be parsed and compiled continuously, which consequently lowers the Internet site loading time. The module could be pretty effective for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.

It will take you just a click to activate APC for one or a couple of PHP releases and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings that are different from the ones for the account as a whole, you can set what PHP version will be used and whether APC has to be allowed or not. In this way, one site could use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, and another one could use a different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
