What is Zend Optimizer? How will it influence the efficiency of a PHP application?
Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that's required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you wish to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you can take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A number of pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to function effectively because their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Internet sites that use the instrument are usually speedier as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting
When you purchase a web hosting
through our company, you'll be able to pick the PHP version, which will be active for your account depending on what your script applications need. You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia website 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 section, you can use a compact tool which will allow you to control the php.ini file for the account and enable or disable PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, which means that you will not need any previous knowledge because 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 necessary code in a particular domain folder. If you need any help to activate the instrument, you'll be able to contact our tech support crew anytime.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server
that we supply and it'll take you only a few clicks to do this. Once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to head to the PHP Configuration section where you can find many different options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you won't have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP release for your account through the very same section, you'll have to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we have also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP release and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific site, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
