Learn what exactly Zend Optimizer is and the way it can alter the performance of any PHP application.
Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular app that is employed to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous corporations that create paid script apps, so if you purchase such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer comes with all servers which are a part of our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform. No matter which cloud plan
you select, you can activate the software tool to guarantee that any kind of script app that needs it will work flawlessly in your account. Using a convenient tool in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all of the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate different functions with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first website hosting account ever, you will not experience any difficulties. In the very same area you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, so any time you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform allows you to use several PHP versions at once, 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 are able to activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server
that we supply and it'll take you only a few clicks to do this. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to head to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find many different options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, so you will not need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we've also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular site, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
