What is Zend Optimizer? How will it influence the efficiency of a PHP application?
Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you need to protect your custom script, for example, you can employ Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Countless pre-made script-driven applications, especially ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to function properly because their core code is generally not free to modify. Internet sites that use the tool are often faster because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting
All the web hosting
accounts which we provide are set up on our cutting-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is present on all the servers which are part of the clusters. Therefore, you can set up and execute script-driven applications that require Zend regardless of the plan that you select upon registration. The easy to navigate Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with the accounts will make the control over your web presence very easy and enabling Zend Optimizer is not an exception because it'll take a single click to do this. Of course, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and take advantage of Zend just for a particular domain. As you can switch between a number of PHP releases, you'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer for all of them in the very same way and run both new and older applications from the same account.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server
that we offer and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do that. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should head to the PHP Configuration section where you will find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you do not have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP version for your account from the same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we have also left the option for more experienced users to set the PHP version as well as 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 hosting account in general.
