Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, which is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you want to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you will be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Countless pre-made script-driven apps, especially ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to function effectively because their core code is generally not free to change. Internet sites that use the tool are usually speedier since their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

When you buy a cloud hosting through our company, you'll be able to select the PHP release, that will be active for your account based on what your script applications need. You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel for all of the versions that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this area, you will be able to take advantage of a compact software tool which will allow you to manage the php.ini file for the account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, so you will not need any kind of previous knowledge since activating Zend Optimizer will be as simple as clicking a button. More advanced users will be able to do the same by placing a php.ini file with the needed code in a specific domain folder. In case you need any assistance to activate the tool, you'll be able to contact our technical support crew anytime.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You are able to enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do that. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to head to the PHP Configuration section where you will find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, so you will not need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Because you can also change the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you will have to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we've also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific site, but not for the website hosting account in general.
