Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that's needed to run files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you want to protect your custom-made script, for example, you'll be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A number of ready-made script-driven applications, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to work efficiently because their core code is generally not free to change. Sites which use the instrument are often speedier because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

When you acquire a cloud hosting from us, you're able to choose the PHP version, which will be active for the account according to what your script applications require. You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for any of the releases that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this section, you're able to use a small software tool which will allow you to manage the php.ini file for the account and enable or disable PHP extensions using On and Off buttons, therefore you will not need any previous experience since activating Zend Optimizer will be as simple as clicking a button. More experienced users can do the same by placing a php.ini file with the required program code in a specific domain folder. In case you need any assistance to activate the instrument, you will be able to contact our tech support crew at any time.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we supply and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do that. Once 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 them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you don't need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we have also left the option for more experienced users to set the PHP release and 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 particular website, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
