Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that's required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you'd like to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you're able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A lot of pre-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to operate efficiently since their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Internet sites which use the instrument are often faster because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers that are part of our advanced cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux shared web hosting you pick, you can activate the software instrument so that any kind of script application which needs it will work properly within your account. Using a handy tool in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the web hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate various functions with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first web hosting account ever, you will not encounter any issues. In the same section you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, so each time you move to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Since our platform enables you to use multiple PHP releases at once, more experienced users can activate the tool 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 of our Linux semi-dedicated servers. It's present on our innovative cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven app that you want to use requires it to function, you just have to enable it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also switch the PHP version which your website hosting account uses. For each and every new release which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used versions of PHP, so you won't need to do that each time. In the event that you have more experience, you can benefit from the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set a different PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific site without altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
