Zend Optimizer is a popular software, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you need to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you will be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Various pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to operate efficiently since their core code is often not free to modify. Websites which use the tool are often faster because their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

When you get a cloud hosting from us, you can pick the PHP version, that will be active for the account depending on what your script apps require. You can activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for any of the versions that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this section, you will be able to take advantage of a compact tool that will allow you to control the php.ini file for your account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions using On and Off buttons, so you will not need any kind of previous knowledge because enabling Zend Optimizer is as simple as clicking a button. More skilled users will be able to do the same thing by placing a php.ini file with the necessary program code in a particular domain folder. In case you need any help to activate the instrument, you'll be able to contact our tech support crew anytime.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we supply and it will take you only a few clicks to do this. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to head to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find many different options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, so you will not need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Because you can also change the PHP version for your account from the same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we've also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP release and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular site, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
