APC, which means Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script app, which could boost a database-driven website several times. When a PHP page is accessed, the script pulls the website content that needs to be displayed from a database, parses and compiles the code, then the result is displayed to the visitor. While this is necessary for sites with constantly changing content, it is a complete waste of processing time and system resources for a website that doesn't change, for example an informational portal which displays the exact same content at all times. As soon as the pages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them each time a visitor loads them. Since this saves the time to get content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, the website will load a lot quicker. APC is really helpful particularly for scripts with larger source code.

In addition, you can decide if all sites using a certain PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be enabled just for selected websites and not for all websites in the hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful when you need to employ a different web accelerator for several of your Internet sites. These customizations are done without difficulty by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.
