I have Parallels Plesk Panel. I'm setting hosting account and php could be enabled in three ways

  • Apache module
  • FastCGI application
  • CGI application

What is the difference and how it affects php work ?

I'll save you some reading: just use FastCGI. The Apache module is a security hole in a box, and CGI is slow.
