Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, which is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you would like to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you are able to take advantage of 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. A number of ready-made script-driven apps, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to operate efficiently since their core code is usually not free to change. Websites that use the tool are typically speedier because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our in-house built cloud platform and you can use it whatever the shared website hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the accounts and it will take you as little as a few clicks to do this. Considering that we support many different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you haven't used yet. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click instrument, so you won't need any kind of programming skills or previous practical experience. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer without troubles, still in case you're not sure what to do, you are able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they'll enable the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be 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. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should visit the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you do not have to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP version for your account from the same section, you'll have to activate Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we have also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP version and 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 particular website, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
