Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you need to protect your custom-made script, for example, you can take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Numerous ready-made script-driven apps, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to operate efficiently as their core code is often not free to change. Internet sites that use the instrument are often quicker because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

When you buy a Linux cloud website hosting plan from our company, you're able to choose the PHP release, which will be active for the account depending on what your script applications require. You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel for all of the releases that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this section, you can take advantage of a compact tool that will allow you to handle the php.ini file for the account and enable or disable PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, therefore you won't need any previous knowledge because enabling Zend Optimizer will be as easy as clicking a button. More advanced users will be able to do the same thing by adding a php.ini file with the needed code in a particular domain folder. In case you need any assistance to activate the instrument, you will be able to contact our technical support crew at any time.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You are able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you just a few clicks to do this. When you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to go to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find many different options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you do not need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Because you can also change the PHP version for your account through the same section, you will need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we have also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP version 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.
