Learn precisely what Zend Optimizer is and the way it might affect the entire performance of any PHP app.
Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you wish to protect your custom script, for example, you are able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. A number of pre-made script-driven apps, in particular ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to function correctly because their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Websites which use the tool are generally quicker since their code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers that are part of our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform. No matter which shared hosting plan
you pick, you will be able to take advantage of the tool to guarantee that any kind of script app which needs it will operate properly in your account. Using a convenient tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the web hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate a variety of functions 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 encounter any problems. In the exact same section you can also pick the PHP version 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. As our platform allows you to use several PHP versions at the same time, more experienced users can activate the instrument for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server
that we provide and it takes only a few clicks to do this. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to head to the PHP Configuration section where you will find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, so you won't have to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the very same section, you'll have to enable Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we have also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular website, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
