Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you would like to protect your custom-made script, for example, you can 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 site. A lot of ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to function efficiently because their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Internet sites which use the tool are normally faster as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are part of our modern cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux website hosting package you obtain, you can take advantage of the instrument to guarantee that any script application that needs it will function perfectly in your account. Using a convenient instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the web hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate different functions with a button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you will not encounter any troubles. In the same area you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, thus whenever you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Because our platform enables you to employ a couple of PHP versions simultaneously, more advanced users can activate the tool for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated packages. It's installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven app which you need to use requires it to work, you just need to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also switch the PHP release which your hosting account uses. For every new version that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used versions of PHP, so you will not need to do this each time. In the event that you have more experience, you'll be able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set another PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific domain name without the need of altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
