Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you want to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you will be able to employ Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A number of pre-made script-driven apps, in particular ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to work properly since their core code is often not free to modify. Sites that use the tool are generally quicker because their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting
All cloud website hosting accounts that we provide are created on our state-of-the-art cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are part of the clusters. For that reason, you'll be able to install and execute script-driven applications that require Zend irrespective of the plan that you choose upon signup. The user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel that is featured with the accounts will make the control over your world wide web presence a breeze and activating Zend Optimizer makes no exception as it will take only a single click to do it. Of course, more experienced users can also insert a php.ini file in a given domain folder and enable Zend only for a particular domain name. As you can switch between a number of PHP releases, you'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer for any of them in exactly the same way and manage both new and older apps within the same account.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans. It is available on our avant-garde cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application that you wish to use requires it to work, you just need to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also change the PHP version which your hosting account uses. For any new version that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used versions of PHP, so you will not have to do this each time. In case you have more experience, you are able to benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set a different PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific website without altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
