Learn exactly what Zend Optimizer is and exactly how it will affect the overall performance of a PHP application.
Zend Optimizer is a popular software, which is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you would like to protect your custom-made script, for example, you are able to employ 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 website. Countless ready-made script-driven applications, particularly ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to function correctly since their core code is often not free to modify. Sites which use the tool are often faster as their code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers which are a part of our revolutionary cloud hosting platform. No matter which cloud website hosting package
you acquire, you can activate the software instrument so that any script app which needs it will work perfectly as part of your account. By using a convenient software tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate different settings with a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first web hosting account ever, you won't experience any problems. In the exact same section you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, which means that whenever you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Because our platform enables you to work with a couple of PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the instrument for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that comprise our cluster web hosting platform, therefore you're able to use it for your script-driven apps with any of our semi-dedicated server
plans. It'll be available at all times even if you switch the PHP release for your account because our feature-rich platform allows you to choose between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Both changing the version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes a couple of clicks in the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to take care of the semi-dedicated accounts. What is more, you can also employ a different release of PHP and activate or deactivate Zend for each individual site that you host in your account. This is possible by employing a php.ini file in a domain folder with just a few lines of code inside it. In case you do not have previous experience and you aren't sure how to do that, our 24/7 support can help you.
