Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you wish to protect your custom-made script, for example, you will be able to use Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A number of pre-made script-driven applications, especially ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to function correctly as their core code is generally not free to modify. Sites that use the instrument are often faster because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all servers that are a part of our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. No matter which Linux website hosting you get, you will be able to activate the tool to guarantee that any kind of script application which needs it will operate perfectly within your account. Using a convenient tool from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate different settings with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first hosting account ever, you will not experience any difficulties. In the very same area you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, which means that any time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform enables you to take advantage of several PHP versions at once, more advanced users can activate the tool for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you just a few clicks to do this. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should head to the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, therefore you don't need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the same section, you will have to enable Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we have also left the option for more experienced users to set both the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific website, but not for the hosting account as a whole.
