Zend Optimizer is a popular software, which is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you would like to protect your custom script, for instance, you will 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. A number of pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to operate effectively as their core code is generally not free to change. Websites which use the instrument are generally speedier as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are part of our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform. No matter which website hosting plan you obtain, you will be able to use the instrument to guarantee that any script application that needs it will operate perfectly as part of your account. By using a handy instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the web hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate various functions with a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this is your very first hosting account ever, you won't experience any troubles. In the very same section you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, which means that any time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. As our platform enables you to take advantage of several PHP versions at once, more experienced users can activate the tool for a particular site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we offer and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do that. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to go to the PHP Configuration section where you can find many different options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, so you will not need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. As you can also change the PHP version for your account from the same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we have also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific website, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
