APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP websites keep their content inside a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content that needs to be viewed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the visitor. These actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the web server for every single page that is loaded. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content material, there're numerous Internet sites that offer the very same content on many of their webpages constantly - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, and many others. APC is very useful for this type of websites since it caches the previously compiled code and displays it each time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only decrease the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any site a few times.

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