Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you would like to protect your custom script, for example, you'll be able to use Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Many ready-made script-driven apps, particularly ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to operate effectively because their core code is often not free to change. Sites which use the instrument are usually quicker since their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

If you get a Linux shared web hosting from us, you have the option to pick the PHP version, that will be active for your account based on what your script applications require. You can activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel for any of the versions that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this section, you will be able to take advantage of a compact software tool which will allow you to manage the php.ini file for your account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, so you will not need any kind of previous experience as activating Zend Optimizer is as simple as clicking a button. More advanced users can do the same by placing a php.ini file with the needed code in a particular domain folder. If you need any assistance to activate the instrument, you can contact our technical support crew at any time.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we offer and it takes just a few clicks to do that. After you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to head to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find various options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, therefore you will not need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we've also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP release 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 site, but not for the web hosting account in general.
