Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you'd like to protect your custom-written script, for example, you're able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Lots of pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to operate correctly as their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Websites that use the instrument are typically speedier since their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer can be found on our in-house built cloud platform and you're able to use it whatever the web hosting package that you select. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all accounts and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do that. Given that we support a number of different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to activate Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you haven't used yet. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click application, and you do not need any coding skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without any troubles, still when you are unsure what you should do, you'll be able to contact our 24/7 tech support team and they will enable the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we offer and it takes only a few clicks to do this. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to head to the PHP Configuration section where you will find various options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, so you don't need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Because you can also change the PHP release for your account from the same section, you will have to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we've also left the option for more experienced users to set the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific site, but not for the website hosting account in general.
