Zend Optimizer is a popular software, which is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you want to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you are able to use 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 blog. Numerous ready-made script-driven applications, especially ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to operate effectively since their core code is generally not free to modify. Internet sites which use the instrument are typically faster because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on our in-house built cloud platform and you'll be able to use it whatever the website hosting package that you select. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the accounts and it'll take you as little as several clicks to do this. Given that we support a number of different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you haven't used so far. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click software instrument, so you do not need any coding skills or previous experience. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app that needs Zend Optimizer without difficulties, but when you're not sure what you should do, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they'll activate the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We have set up Zend Optimizer on all the servers that are a part of our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and considering that all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you'll be able to activate and employ Zend for any kind of script application which you'd like to use with no more than a single click. You can also pick the PHP release that will be active for your account, therefore if you move to another version, you just have to go to the Advanced section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it's as easy as that. If you switch the version back, Zend will already be active. More tech-savvy users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP version and to enable Zend Optimizer only for a single site by putting a php.ini file with the required program code inside the corresponding domain folder.
