Caching Question

Hey everyone, I am dabbling with caching and could use some help. I have done a lot of reading here on the website and my mind is blown by the different opinions and quite heated debated caching brings. My current setup is XF 1.4, PHP 5.6, and I will screenshot my options for the server caching. I have HawkHost's top shared plan and was wondering if you can walk me through which caching setup will be best for me and how to config it.

Current Config:

# Defining Caching
$config['cache']['enabled'] = true;
$config['cache']['frontend'] = 'Core';
$config['cache']['frontendOptions']['cache_id_prefix'] = 'xf_';
# APCU Caching
$config['cache']['backend'] = 'Apc';
# File Caching (Not In Use)
# $config['cache']['backend'] = 'File';
Thank you so much everyone!

I'm afraid there is not much to do in shared hosting. But from your screenshot, you had opcache and apcu and memcache/memcached, and you use only apcu?
