Learn exactly what Zend Optimizer is and also just how it will alter the general performance of a PHP app.
Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that's required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you would like to protect your custom script, for example, you are 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. Countless ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to function properly since their core code is usually not free to change. Sites that use the tool are typically quicker because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting
When you obtain a Linux shared web hosting
from our company, you will be able to pick the PHP version, which will be active for the account according to what your script apps require. You can activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for any of the releases that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this area, you'll be able to use a small tool that will allow you to manage the php.ini file for your account and enable or disable PHP extensions through On and Off buttons, therefore you will not need any kind of previous knowledge considering that enabling Zend Optimizer will be as simple as clicking a button. More experienced users will be able to do the same by adding a php.ini file with the needed program code in a particular domain folder. In case you need any help to activate the tool, you are able to contact our technical support crew anytime.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server
that we supply and it takes only a couple of clicks to do this. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to go to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find various options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you don't have to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we've also left the possibility for more experienced users to set both the PHP release and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific site, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
