Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you wish to protect your custom script, for example, you are able to employ Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Countless ready-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to function correctly because their core code is generally not free to change. Websites which use the tool are generally quicker because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers which are a part of our innovative cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux hosting service you acquire, you will be able to activate the instrument to guarantee that any script app which requires it will work perfectly in your account. Using a handy instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate various options with just a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you won't encounter any issues. In the very same section you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, thus whenever you move to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform enables you to work with multiple PHP releases at the same time, more advanced users can enable the instrument for a particular 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 semi-dedicated hosting services. It is present on our innovative cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven app which you'd like to use requires it to function, you just have to enable it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also change the PHP version that your hosting account uses. For any new release which you set, just 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 will not need to do that each time. In case you have more experience, you can take advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set another PHP version and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific website without the need of altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
