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 second encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you'd like to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you're able to take advantage of 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. Various pre-made script-driven apps, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to work properly as their core code is often not free to change. Sites that use the instrument are usually speedier as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers which are a part of our innovative cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux web hosting service
you get, you will be able to use the software tool to ensure that any script app which needs it will function perfectly in your account. By using a handy software tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate different settings with a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first web hosting account ever, you will not encounter any problems. In the very same section you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, and any time you move to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Because our platform allows you to use a couple of PHP versions at once, more experienced users can enable the tool for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
