Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you want to protect your custom-written script, for example, you will be 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. Many ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to operate correctly as their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Internet sites which use the tool are often quicker as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all servers which are a part of our modern cloud web hosting platform. No matter which hosting service you get, you will be able to activate the software instrument so that any script application that requires it will function properly as part of your account. By using a convenient tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the web hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate a variety of settings with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your first hosting account ever, you will not have any difficulties. In the exact same section you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, which means that whenever you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Since our platform enables you to employ a couple of PHP releases simultaneously, more advanced users can activate the instrument for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that comprise our cluster website hosting platform, therefore you will be able to use it for all of your script-driven apps with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. It'll be available all the time even if you switch the PHP version for your account because our feature-rich platform allows you to choose between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Both changing the version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes just a couple of clicks in the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to control the semi-dedicated accounts. In addition, you can also use a different version of PHP and enable or disable Zend for every single site that you host in the account. You can do this by employing a php.ini file in a domain folder with just a couple of lines of code in it. In case you don't have previous experience and you are unsure how to do this, our 24/7 support can assist you.
