Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you'd like to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you're able to use Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Many pre-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to operate effectively as their core code is often not free to modify. Websites which use the instrument are often faster since their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
All the cloud hosting accounts which we provide are set up on our advanced cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is present on all of the servers which are part of the clusters. Because of this, you're able to set up and run script-driven applications that need Zend regardless of the plan that you pick upon signup. The user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel which is featured with the accounts will make the management of your world wide web presence a piece of cake and enabling Zend Optimizer makes no exception because it will take just a single click to do it. In addition, more experienced users can also insert a php.ini file in a given domain folder and enable Zend only for a particular domain. As you can switch between a number of PHP releases, you can enable Zend Optimizer for them in the very same way and manage both new and older apps in the same account.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
Zend Optimizer is installed on all of the servers that comprise our cluster web hosting platform, which means that you'll be able to use it for all your script-driven applications with all of our semi-dedicated server packages. It will be available all of the time even when you switch the PHP version for your account as our feature-rich platform allows you to choose from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Both changing your version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes just a few clicks in the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to manage the semi-dedicated accounts. Furthermore, you can even use a different release of PHP and enable or disable Zend for every single website that you host from your account. This is possible by employing a php.ini file in a domain folder with a few lines of code inside it. If you do not have previous experience and you aren't sure how to do that, our 24/7 technical assistance can help you.
