Learn exactly what Zend Optimizer is and exactly how it can change the overall performance of a PHP application.
Lots of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encrypted code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the illegal use of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is used widely since it can be used to change any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encrypted files to run the right way on a web server afterwards is if one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. If you would like to use any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, sites which require the tool usually perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting
All of the web hosting accounts that we offer are generated on our leading-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are a part of the clusters. Because of this, you can set up and run script-driven applications that require Zend regardless of the plan that you select upon registration. The easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel that comes with the accounts will make the management of your web presence a piece of cake and enabling Zend Optimizer is not an exception due to the fact that it will take a single click to do it. Of course, more experienced users can also put a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and enable Zend only for a particular domain. Since you can switch between a number of PHP releases, you'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer for all of them in the very same way and run both new and older applications within the same account.
