Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you'd like to protect your custom-written script, for example, you're able to employ Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A lot of pre-made script-driven applications, especially ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to work efficiently because their core code is generally not free to change. Websites that use the instrument are normally faster because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all servers that are a part of our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which shared hosting service you get, you'll be able to use the instrument to guarantee that any script app that requires it will work perfectly in your account. Using a convenient tool in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the web hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate many different functions with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first website hosting account ever, you won't have any troubles. In the exact same area you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, therefore any time you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. As our platform enables you to use a couple of PHP versions at the same time, more experienced users can activate the instrument for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated service. It is present on our avant-garde cloud platform, so if any script-driven app that you'd like to use requires it to function, you just have to enable it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also switch the PHP version which your hosting account uses. For each and every new version that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used releases of PHP, therefore you won't have to do that each time. In case you have more experience, you are able to take full advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set another PHP version and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular site without altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
