Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that's needed to run files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you wish to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you can use 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. Many ready-made script-driven apps, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to operate effectively because their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Websites which use the instrument are often quicker as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer comes with all servers that are part of our innovative cloud hosting platform. No matter which Linux website hosting service you pick, you will be able to take advantage of the software tool to ensure that any script app which needs it will operate perfectly in your account. Using a handy instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all of the web hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate different functions with a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your first web hosting account ever, you won't experience any difficulties. In the very same area you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, thus each time you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform enables you to use several PHP releases at the same time, more experienced users can enable the tool for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide and it takes only a couple of clicks to do that. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should go to the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, therefore you will not have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP version for your account from the very same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we've also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific site, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
