Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you would like to protect your custom script, for example, you can 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 site. Lots of ready-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to operate properly since their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Internet sites which use the tool are usually quicker because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting
If you purchase a Linux shared web hosting
from us, you are able to choose the PHP version, which will be active for the account depending on what your script apps need. You can activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel for all of the versions that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this area, you are able to take advantage of a small software tool that will allow you to control the php.ini file for your account and enable or disable PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, so you won't need any kind of previous experience since enabling Zend Optimizer will be as simple as clicking a button. More experienced users will be able to do the same thing by adding a php.ini file with the necessary code in a particular domain folder. If you need any help to activate the instrument, you will be able to contact our technical support team at any time.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have set up Zend Optimizer on all of the servers that are a part of our innovative cloud web hosting platform and since all semi-dedicated server
accounts are created on it, you can activate and use Zend for any script app which you'd like to use with just a single click. You may also choose the PHP release that will be active for your account, thus if you switch to another version, you only 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 easy as that. If you change the version back, Zend will already be active. More experienced users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP version and to enable Zend Optimizer just for a separate website by placing a php.ini file with the required code in the corresponding domain folder.
