Learn precisely what Zend Optimizer is and exactly how it will impact the overall performance of a PHP application.
Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you want to protect your custom-made script, for example, you will be able to use Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A number of ready-made script-driven applications, especially ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to operate properly since their core code is usually not free to change. Internet sites that use the instrument are normally quicker as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting
All of the shared web hosting
accounts which we offer are set up on our state-of-the-art cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all of the servers that are a part of the clusters. Because of this, you are able to set up and execute script-driven apps that require Zend regardless of the plan that you choose upon signup. The easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel which comes with the accounts will make the control over your online presence a breeze and enabling Zend Optimizer is not an exception due to the fact that it'll take just a single click to do this. Of course, more experienced users can also put a php.ini file in a given domain folder and enable Zend only for a particular domain name. Since you can switch between numerous PHP releases, you can activate Zend Optimizer for any of them in exactly the same way and run both new and older applications within the same account.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
. It's installed on our revolutionary cloud platform, so if any script-driven app which you'd like to use requires it to function, you just need to activate it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also change the PHP release that your website hosting account uses. For any new version which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used releases of PHP, which means that you will not need to do this each time. In the event that you have more experience, you can take full advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set another PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific website without the need of altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
