What precisely is Zend Optimizer? How can it impact the general performance of a PHP app?
Many licensed and some free script-driven applications have encoded code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software tools used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it's commonly used since it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encoded files to run the right way on a web server subsequently is when an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you want to work with any paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's installed on the server where you will host your site. In addition, sites which require the instrument can perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer is available on our tailor-made cloud platform and you will be able to use it regardless of the web hosting package that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all accounts and it'll take you only a few clicks to do that. Since we support many different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you haven't used yet. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click application, and you won't need any kind of computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application that requires Zend Optimizer with no troubles, but when you're unsure what to do, you can get in touch with our 24/7 technical support team and they'll enable the instrument for you.
