What exactly is Zend Optimizer? How will it affect the functionality of a PHP app?
Zend Optimizer is a popular software, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you need to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you will be able to employ Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. A number of pre-made script-driven applications, especially ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to operate properly because their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Sites that use the instrument are typically quicker as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is available on our custom cloud platform and you are able to use it whatever the shared website hosting
package that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the accounts and it will take you as little as a couple of clicks to do this. Since we support numerous releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll need to activate Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you have not used yet. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click software instrument, therefore you do not need any kind of programming skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app that requires Zend Optimizer with no troubles, but when you are unsure what to do, you are able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they can activate the tool for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
Zend Optimizer is present on all servers that comprise our cluster web hosting platform, so you will be able to use it for your script-driven apps with any of our semi-dedicated server
plans. It is available at all times even when you change the PHP version for your account as our feature-rich platform allows you to choose from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Both changing the version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes just a few clicks in the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel which is used to control the semi-dedicated accounts. What's more, you may even use a different release of PHP and activate or deactivate Zend for every single website that you host in your account. This is possible by using a php.ini file in a domain folder with several lines of program code in it. If you don't have previous experience and you are not sure how to do this, our 24/7 technical assistance can assist you.
