What is Zend Optimizer? Just how can it influence the efficiency of a PHP app?
Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you wish to protect your custom 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. Various ready-made script-driven apps, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to operate correctly since their core code is generally not free to modify. Internet sites which use the instrument are generally speedier since their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
Zend Optimizer is available on our in-house made cloud platform and you will be able to use it whatever the shared hosting
plan that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all of the accounts and it will take you only a few clicks to do that. Because we support numerous versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to activate Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you haven't used yet. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software tool, so you do not need any coding skills or previous practical experience. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application that needs Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, but when you're not sure what you should do, you're able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they can activate the instrument for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated plans
. It is available on our innovative cloud platform, so if any script-driven app which you wish to use requires it to function, you just have 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 release that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used releases of PHP, therefore you won't need to do this every time. In the event that you have more experience, you can take advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set another PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular website without the need of altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
