Learn precisely what Zend Optimizer is and the way it will impact the performance of a PHP application.
Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you wish to protect your custom script, for example, you'll be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Many ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to work efficiently since their core code is usually not free to modify. Websites which use the instrument are typically speedier because their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer is present on our tailor-made cloud platform and you're able to use it regardless of the cloud hosting
package that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all of the accounts and it'll take you only a few clicks to do this. Given that we support a number of different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used yet. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software tool, and you won't need any kind of computer programming skills or previous experience. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer without troubles, but when you are not sure how to proceed, you can get in touch with our 24/7 technical support team and they can activate the tool for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We have installed Zend Optimizer on all of the servers which are a part of our innovative cloud website hosting platform and since all semi-dedicated server
accounts are created on it, you will be able to enable and take advantage of Zend for any kind of script application which you'd like to use with just a click. You may also select the PHP version that will be active for your account, thus if you move to some other release, you just need to go to the Advanced section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it is as simple as that. In case you change the version back, Zend will already be active. More experienced users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP release 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.
