Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, which is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you wish to protect your custom-written script, for example, you're able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Various pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to function correctly as their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Websites that use the instrument are generally quicker because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer can be found on our custom cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the website hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all accounts and it'll take you as little as a few clicks to do that. Considering that we support several different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you haven't used so far. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software instrument, so you will not need any computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app which needs Zend Optimizer without difficulties, yet when you're unsure what to do, you are able to contact our 24/7 tech support team and they will activate the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

Zend Optimizer is featured on all of the servers that comprise our cluster website hosting platform, which means that you will be able to use it for all your script-driven apps with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. It is available all of the time even if you switch the PHP version for your account as our feature-rich platform allows you to choose from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Both changing your version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes a couple of clicks in the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the semi-dedicated accounts. What's more, you can even employ a different version of PHP and activate or deactivate Zend for each individual domain that you host from your account. You can do this by using a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of code inside it. If you don't have previous experience and you are not sure how to do that, our 24/7 tech support can assist you.
