Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you need to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you'll be able to employ Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A large number of ready-made script-driven applications, particularly ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to function properly because their core code is generally not free to modify. Websites which use the instrument are normally speedier because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our in-house built cloud platform and you're able to use it whatever the web hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all accounts and it will take you as little as a couple of clicks to do this. Given that we support several different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to enable Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you have not used yet. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click tool, and you don't need any kind of computer programming skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application that requires Zend Optimizer without any troubles, but if you are unsure what to do, you're able to contact our 24/7 technical support crew and they can activate the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We provide Zend Optimizer with all our semi-dedicated hosting. It's available on our cutting-edge cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven application that you would like 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 area where you can also change the PHP version that your website hosting account uses. For each and every new release that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used releases of PHP, so you won't need to do this every time. If you have more experience, you'll be able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set another PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific site without the need of altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
