Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that's required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you'd like to protect your custom script, for instance, you are able to use Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Countless ready-made script-driven apps, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to work efficiently since their core code is often not free to modify. Internet sites which use the tool are often faster since their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our custom cloud platform and you're able to use it regardless of the website hosting package that you choose. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the accounts and it will take you just a few clicks to do this. Because we support many different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to enable Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you haven't used so far. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software instrument, therefore you don't need any kind of programming skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which needs Zend Optimizer with no troubles, still in case you are not sure how to proceed, you're able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they can activate the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to activate 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 log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to visit the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is among these options, which means that you will not have to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP version for your account from the same section, you'll have to enable Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we've also left the option for more experienced users to set the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular site, but not for the hosting account in general.
