Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you wish to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you will be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Various pre-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to operate correctly because their core code is often not free to change. Internet sites that use the tool are typically faster because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting
If you purchase a Linux shared web hosting package through our company, you have the option to pick the PHP version, which will be active for the account depending on what your script apps require. You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel for all of the releases that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this area, you are able to take advantage of a small software tool which will allow you to manage the php.ini file for the account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, so you will not need any previous knowledge since enabling Zend Optimizer will be as simple as clicking a button. More experienced users can do the same thing by adding a php.ini file with the required code in a specific domain folder. In case you need any help to activate the instrument, you are able to contact our tech support team at any time.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We offer Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages. It's present on our avant-garde cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven app which you wish to use requires it to function, you just have to enable it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also switch the PHP version that your web hosting account uses. For every new version which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used releases of PHP, which means that you will not need to do this each time. In the event that you have more experience, you'll be able to benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set another PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular website without the need of altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
