Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you wish to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you are able to employ Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Countless pre-made script-driven applications, in particular ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to function correctly as their core code is often not free to change. Sites which use the instrument are typically faster since their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

When you obtain a Linux cloud hosting package from us, you are able to choose the PHP release, which will be active for your account depending on what your script apps need. You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for all of the versions that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this section, you can take advantage of a small software tool which will allow you to handle the php.ini file for your account and enable or disable PHP extensions through On and Off buttons, so you won't need any previous experience considering that enabling Zend Optimizer is as simple as clicking a button. More advanced users will be able to do the same by adding a php.ini file with the needed code in a particular domain folder. If you need any assistance to activate the tool, you're able to contact our tech support crew anytime.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We offer Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages. It is available on our revolutionary cloud platform, so if any script-driven app which you'd like to use requires it to function, you just need to enable it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you can also change the PHP version that your web hosting account uses. For every new version which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used releases of PHP, which means that you will not need to do this each and every time. If you have more experience, you'll be able to take full advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set another PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific site without altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
