What precisely is Zend Optimizer? How can it impact the effectiveness of a PHP application?
Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you wish to protect your custom-made script, for example, you will be 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 website. Various ready-made script-driven applications, particularly ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to work properly since their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Sites which use the tool are normally quicker as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer is accessible on our in-house made cloud platform and you can use it whatever the shared web hosting
package that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the accounts and it'll take you just several clicks to do this. Due to the fact that we support numerous releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll need to activate Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you have not used yet. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click tool, so you don't need any computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without any troubles, still when you're not sure what to do, you're able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they will activate the tool for you.
