Learn what precisely Zend Optimizer is and also how it can alter the overall performance of any PHP application.
Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you want to protect your custom-made script, for example, you will be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Countless pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to operate efficiently because their core code is often not free to modify. Internet sites which use the tool are generally quicker as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated servers
. It is available on our avant-garde cloud platform, so if any script-driven application which you need to use requires it to function, you just have to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also switch the PHP release which your hosting account uses. For any new release that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used versions of PHP, therefore you will not need to do this every time. If you have more experience, you'll be able to benefit from the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set another PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific domain without altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
