What is Zend Optimizer? How will it influence the efficiency of a PHP application?
Zend Optimizer is a popular software, which is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The second encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you'd like to protect your custom-written script, for example, you will be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. A number of ready-made script-driven applications, especially ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to work efficiently as their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Internet sites that use the instrument are often speedier since their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer can be found on our in-house made cloud platform and you will be able to use it regardless of the shared website hosting
package that you select. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the accounts and it will take you as little as a few clicks to do that. Since we support several different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you haven't used yet. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click application, and you do not need any programming skills or previous expertise. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without any difficulties, still when you are not sure what to do, you are able to contact our 24/7 technical support crew and they will activate the instrument for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have installed Zend Optimizer on all servers which are a part of our hi-tech cloud hosting platform and since all semi-dedicated server
accounts are created on it, you'll be able to enable and use Zend for any kind of script app which you want to use with no more than a single click. You can also pick the PHP version that will be active for your account, thus if you switch to a different release, you only need to go to the Advanced section of your Hepsia website 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 tech-savvy users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP version and to enable Zend Optimizer just for a separate website by putting a php.ini file with the required program code inside the corresponding domain folder.
