What exactly is Zend Optimizer? How can it influence the general performance of a PHP application?
Zend Optimizer is a popular software, which is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The second encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you would like to protect your custom-written script, for example, you're 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. Many pre-made script-driven apps, in particular ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to function properly as their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Sites which use the tool are typically quicker because their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Hosting
Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom cloud platform and you'll be able to use it regardless of the hosting
package that you select. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the accounts and it will take you just several clicks to do this. Due to the fact that we support many different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to activate Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you have not used so far. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click application, so you don't need any programming skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services will 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 will be able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they can enable the instrument for you.
