Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that's required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you need to protect your custom script, for instance, you will be able to use 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 website. Various ready-made script-driven apps, in particular ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to function properly since their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Internet sites which use the tool are typically quicker since their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all servers which are part of our innovative cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux shared package you select, you'll be able to activate the instrument so that any script application that needs it will operate flawlessly in your account. By using a handy software tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate various options with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your first website hosting account ever, you won't have any difficulties. In the very same section you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, so whenever you move to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform allows you to work with multiple PHP releases at once, more experienced users can enable the instrument for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated packages. It's available on our avant-garde cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application that you'd like to use requires it to function, you just have to enable it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also switch the PHP release which your web hosting account uses. For each new release which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia will remember your choice for previously used versions of PHP, which means that you won't have to do that every time. If you have more experience, you'll be able to take advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set another PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific domain without the need of altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
