Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you'd like to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you will be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will no longer 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 apps, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to operate correctly since their core code is usually not free to modify. Sites which use the instrument are usually faster as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers that are a part of our modern cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which cloud web hosting you choose, you will be able to activate the software tool so that any kind of script app that needs it will function flawlessly as part of your account. By using a convenient tool in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the website hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate many different settings with a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first hosting account ever, you won't experience any troubles. In the very same area you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, which means that whenever you move to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Because our platform allows you to employ a couple of PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can activate the tool for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that comprise our cluster website hosting platform, therefore you'll be able to use it for all of your script-driven applications with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. It is available all of the time even if you change the PHP version for your account as our feature-rich platform allows you to choose between 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 few clicks in the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the semi-dedicated accounts. In addition, you can also employ a different version of PHP and enable or disable Zend for each individual site that you host from your account. This is possible by using a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of code inside it. If you do not have previous experience and you are unsure how to do this, our 24/7 support can help you.
