Zend Optimizer is a useful software tool that can improve the performance your PHP applications. Learn why and how to enable it.
Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is required to run files protected with Zend Guard. The second encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you wish to protect your custom-written script, for example, you are able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Lots of ready-made script-driven apps, particularly ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to function correctly as their core code is generally not free to modify. Websites that use the instrument are often quicker because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer can be found on our custom cloud platform and you'll be able to use it whatever the web hosting
package that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the accounts and it'll take you only a few clicks to do that. Due to the fact that we support a number of different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you haven't used yet. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software instrument, so you will not need any computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application that needs Zend Optimizer without difficulties, still if you're not sure what you should do, you will be able to contact our 24/7 tech support team and they'll activate the tool for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server
that we offer and it will take you just a few clicks to do this. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should visit the PHP Configuration section where you can find many different options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you will not have to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP release for your account through the same section, you'll have to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we have also left the possibility for more experienced users to set both 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 particular website, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
