Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that's required to run files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you'd like to protect your custom-made script, for example, you're able to take advantage of 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 website. A number of ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to function properly since their core code is generally not free to change. Internet sites that use the instrument are generally faster because their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers that are a part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux shared service you acquire, you will be able to use the instrument to guarantee that any kind of script application which requires it will work flawlessly in your account. Using a convenient tool in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the website hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate various functions with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your very first web hosting account ever, you will not experience any troubles. In the exact same section you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, and each time you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Because our platform enables you to use a couple of PHP releases at the same time, more advanced users can activate the instrument for an individual site 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 installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application which you need to use requires it to function, you just need to enable it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you can also change the PHP release that your website hosting account uses. For any new version that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used releases of PHP, therefore you won't have to do that every time. In case you have more experience, you can benefit from the versatility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file to set a different PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific website without altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
