What precisely is Zend Optimizer? Just how can it affect the general performance of a PHP application?
Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of organizations which develop paid script apps, so in case you acquire such an app for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
All the shared hosting
accounts that we provide are set up on our cutting-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers that are a part of the clusters. As a result, you can set up and run script-driven apps that need Zend regardless of the plan that you pick upon registration. The easy to navigate Hepsia Control Panel which is included with the accounts will make the control over your world wide web presence very simple and activating Zend Optimizer makes no exception due to the fact that it will take only a single click to do it. Furthermore, more experienced users can also put a php.ini file in a specific domain folder and activate Zend only for a specific domain name. As you can switch between numerous PHP releases, you can activate Zend Optimizer for all of them in exactly the same way and run both new and older applications from the same account.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server
that we provide and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do that. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should go to the PHP Configuration section where you can find many different options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you will not have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP release for your account through the same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we have also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific site, but not for the website hosting account in general.
