Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that's needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you need to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you can take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Many ready-made script-driven applications, particularly ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to function properly as their core code is generally not free to change. Internet sites which use the tool are usually quicker as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

When you buy a cloud web hosting through us, you can choose the PHP release, which will be active for the account based on what your script apps require. You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel for all of the releases that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this area, you'll be able to employ a small tool that will allow you to manage the php.ini file for your account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions using On and Off buttons, which means that you won't need any kind of previous knowledge because enabling Zend Optimizer will be as simple as clicking a button. More experienced users will be able to do the same thing by adding a php.ini file with the necessary program code in a specific domain folder. In case you need any assistance to activate the instrument, you can contact our technical support team at any time.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated servers. It is available on our avant-garde cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven app that you wish to use requires it to function, you just need to activate it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also change the PHP release which your hosting account uses. For every new version that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia will remember your choice for previously used versions of PHP, which means that you won't have to do this each time. In the event that you have more experience, you can take advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file to set a different PHP version and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular domain name without the need of altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
