Zend Optimizer is a popular software, which is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you want to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you'll be able to use Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A number of pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to operate effectively because their core code is usually not free to modify. Sites which use the tool are typically speedier because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our tailor-made cloud platform and you're able to use it whatever the web hosting plan that you select. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the accounts and it will take you only a few clicks to do that. Given that we support numerous releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used so far. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click instrument, therefore you don't need any computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app that requires Zend Optimizer without any difficulties, but if you are not sure how to proceed, you're able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support team and they will activate the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on all of the servers that comprise our cluster hosting platform, therefore you'll be able to use it for all of your script-driven applications with all of our semi-dedicated server packages. It will be available all of the time even when you change the PHP release for your account as our feature-rich platform allows you to select from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Both changing the version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes a couple of clicks in the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to control the semi-dedicated accounts. In addition, you can even use a different release of PHP and enable or disable Zend for each individual domain that you host in the account. This is possible by using a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of program code in it. If you don't have previous experience and you are not sure how to do this, our 24/7 technical support will assist.
