Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, which is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you'd like to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you will be able to take advantage of 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 site. A lot of pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to work efficiently because their core code is generally not free to change. Internet sites that use the instrument are generally faster as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer comes with all servers that are a part of our modern cloud hosting platform. No matter which shared web hosting you choose, you can use the software instrument so that any kind of script app which requires it will work flawlessly as part of your account. Using a convenient tool from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the web hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate different functions with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your first web hosting account ever, you will not encounter any issues. In the very same area you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, thus any time you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Since our platform enables you to employ multiple PHP releases at the same time, more experienced users can activate the instrument for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We provide Zend Optimizer with all our semi-dedicated servers. It is present on our cutting-edge cloud platform, so if any script-driven app that you need to use requires it to work, you just have to activate it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also change the PHP release that your web hosting account uses. For each new release which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia will remember your choice for previously used versions of PHP, therefore you will not need to do that each time. In case you have more experience, you can take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set a different PHP version and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific site without altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
