Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you need to protect your custom script, for example, you'll be able to take advantage of 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 website. Countless pre-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to operate efficiently since their core code is generally not free to change. Sites which use the instrument are often faster since their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers that are part of our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform. No matter which Linux website hosting you pick, you'll be able to activate the software tool so that any kind of script app which needs it will function perfectly as part of your account. Using a handy instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate a variety of options 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 have any issues. In the very same section you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, so any time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform allows you to use multiple PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the instrument for a particular site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. It is present on our innovative cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application that you'd like to use requires it to work, you just need to enable it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also change the PHP release which your hosting account uses. For every new release that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia will remember your choice for previously used releases of PHP, which means that you won't have to do that every time. In case you have more experience, you can take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific website without altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
