Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you want to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you'll be able to use Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Many ready-made script-driven applications, especially ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to operate correctly since their core code is often not free to modify. Internet sites which use the instrument are usually quicker since their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on our tailor-made cloud platform and you'll be able to use it whatever the shared hosting package that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all of the accounts and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do this. Given that we support a number of different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you haven't used so far. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click tool, therefore you will not need any kind of coding skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer with no troubles, still in case you are unsure what to do, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support team and they can activate the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we offer and it will take you only a few clicks to do that. Once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to visit the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you do not have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Because you can also change the PHP version for your account through the same section, you'll have to enable Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we've also left the possibility for more experienced users to set both the PHP version as well as 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 particular site, but not for the website hosting account in general.
