Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that's needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you wish to protect your custom script, for instance, you'll be able to employ 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. Various pre-made script-driven apps, especially ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to operate effectively because their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Websites which use the instrument are typically faster because their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

When you obtain a Linux cloud website hosting package from our company, you have the option to choose the PHP release, which will be active for your account based on what your script apps require. You can activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel for all of the versions that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this area, you will be able to use a small tool that will allow you to manage the php.ini file for the account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions using On and Off buttons, so you will not need any previous knowledge because enabling Zend Optimizer will be as simple as clicking a button. More advanced users will be able to do the same thing by placing a php.ini file with the necessary program code in a specific domain folder. If you need any assistance to activate the instrument, you will be able to contact our tech support crew at any time.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we supply and it'll take you only a few clicks to do this. Once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should head to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find various options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you don't need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Because you can also change the PHP release for your account from the very same section, you will have to enable Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we have also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular website, but not for the hosting account in general.
