Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you would like to protect your custom-made script, for example, you can take advantage of 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. A number of ready-made script-driven apps, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to function correctly because their core code is often not free to modify. Sites that use the instrument are typically quicker because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers which are a part of our revolutionary cloud hosting platform. No matter which Linux shared hosting you get, you will be able to use the instrument so that any script app that needs it will work flawlessly as part of your account. Using a convenient tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the web hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate many different options with a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you will not experience any troubles. In the same section you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, which means that whenever you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. As our platform enables you to employ several PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can activate the instrument for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we offer and it takes only a few clicks to do that. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to visit the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you don't have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP version for your account through the same section, you'll have to activate Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we've also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP version as well as 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 specific website, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
