Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and could speed up such a website as much as three times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a website visitor opens some webpage, the script connects to a database in order to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the site visitor. If the output code does not change however, that's the case with sites which display identical content all the time, these actions result in excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it each time visitors browse a site, so the database does not have to be accessed and the program code does not need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, which consequently lowers the site loading time. The module could be very helpful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.

As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are made supports multiple PHP versions, you'll have flexibility regarding the scripts and web accelerators you could employ. It will take you only a click to activate APC for one or a couple of PHP versions and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are not the same as the ones for the account as a whole, you'll be able to set what PHP version will be used and whether APC needs to be enabled or not. This way, one site could use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, while another one can use some different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
