Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you would like to protect your custom-written script, for example, you'll be able to use Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Various pre-made script-driven apps, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to work correctly because their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Internet sites which use the instrument are usually faster as their code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting
When you buy a web hosting service through us, you will be able to select the PHP version, which will be active for your account depending on what your script apps need. You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel for all of the releases that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this area, you'll be able to take advantage of a small software tool that will allow you to handle the php.ini file for your account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions through On and Off buttons, so you will not need any kind of previous knowledge as enabling Zend Optimizer is as easy as clicking a button. More advanced users can do the same thing by placing a php.ini file with the needed code in a specific domain folder. In case you need any help to activate the instrument, you're able to contact our technical support crew at any time.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We have installed Zend Optimizer on all of the servers that are a part of our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and considering that all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you can enable and use Zend for any script app which you wish to use with just a single click. You may also pick the PHP release which will be active for your account, so if you switch to a new release, you just have to go to the Advanced part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it's as simple as that. If you switch the version back, Zend will already be active. More tech-savvy users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP version and to enable Zend Optimizer only for a single site by placing a php.ini file with the required code in the corresponding domain folder.
