What exactly is Zend Optimizer? How will it influence the general performance of a PHP app?
Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you want to protect your custom script, for instance, you'll be able to use Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Lots of pre-made script-driven apps, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to function effectively since their core code is often not free to modify. Internet sites which use the tool are usually faster because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are part of our innovative cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux cloud web hosting package
you choose, you will be able to activate the tool to ensure that any script application that needs it will work perfectly in your account. Using a handy tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate different functions with just a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first web hosting account ever, you will not encounter any difficulties. In the exact same area you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, therefore any time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Because our platform allows you to employ several PHP releases at once, more experienced users can enable the instrument for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have installed Zend Optimizer on all the servers which are a part of our innovative cloud web hosting platform and due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server
accounts are created on it, you can enable and take advantage of Zend for any kind of script application that you wish to use with no more than a click. You can also pick the PHP release that will be active for your account, thus if you move to another release, you just have to go to the Advanced part of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it's 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 site by putting a php.ini file with the needed code in the corresponding domain folder.
