What exactly is Zend Optimizer? Just how can it affect the functionality of a PHP app?
Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you need to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you'll be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. A large number of pre-made script-driven apps, in particular ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to function properly because their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Internet sites that use the tool are generally speedier since their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers which are a part of our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which web hosting plan
you obtain, you will be able to use the tool to ensure that any script application that needs it will operate properly as part of your account. By using a convenient tool in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the web hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate various functions with a button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your first website hosting account ever, you will not have any issues. In the very same section you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, therefore any time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Since our platform enables you to take advantage of a couple of PHP releases at once, more experienced users can enable the tool for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We have set up Zend Optimizer on all the servers which are a part of our revolutionary cloud web hosting platform and due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server
accounts are created on it, you will be able to activate and use Zend for any script application which you wish to use with just a click. You can also pick the PHP version that will be active for your account, so if you switch to some other release, you just need to go to the Advanced part of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it is as simple as that. In case you switch the version back, Zend will already be active. More experienced users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP version and to activate Zend Optimizer only for a single site by placing a php.ini file with the needed code in the corresponding domain folder.
