Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you need to protect your custom script, for instance, you'll be able to take advantage of 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 blog. A lot of pre-made script-driven applications, particularly ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to operate properly since their core code is often not free to change. Sites that use the tool are generally speedier because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are part of our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which cloud service you pick, you'll be able to activate the tool so that any script application which requires it will function perfectly in your account. Using a convenient software tool in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate different options with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your first website hosting account ever, you will not experience any problems. In the same section you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, so each time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Because our platform allows you to take advantage of a couple of PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the instrument for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
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 are able to use it for all of your script-driven apps with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. It is available at all times even if you change the PHP release for your account since our feature-rich platform allows you to choose between 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 hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the semi-dedicated accounts. What's more, you can also use a different version of PHP and activate or deactivate Zend for every single website that you host from your account. You can do this by employing a php.ini file in a domain folder with just a couple of lines of code in it. If you don't have previous experience and you aren't sure how to do this, our 24/7 support will assist.
