Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you'd like to protect your custom script, for example, you will be able to employ Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Countless pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to function properly as their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Websites which use the instrument are generally speedier because their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers which are part of our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. No matter which hosting you acquire, you will be able to use the software instrument to ensure that any kind of script app which needs it will work perfectly as part of your account. By using a handy software instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate many different settings with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first hosting account ever, you won't have any issues. In the exact same section you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, thus whenever you move to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform allows you to use multiple PHP releases at once, more advanced users can activate the instrument for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you only a few clicks to do this. After you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you should visit the PHP Configuration section where you will find various options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, therefore you will not have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP version for your account from the very same section, you will have to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we have also left the option for more experienced users to set both the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular site, but not for the hosting account in general.
