Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that's required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you'd like to protect your custom script, for instance, you are able to employ Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Lots of ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to work effectively since their core code is generally not free to change. Websites which use the instrument are typically quicker since their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

When you get a Linux cloud hosting plan from our company, you will be able to select the PHP release, that will be active for your account according to what your script applications need. You can activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for any of the releases that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this section, you can employ a compact tool that will allow you to manage the php.ini file for your account and enable or disable PHP extensions using On and Off buttons, which means that you won't need any previous experience as enabling Zend Optimizer will be as easy as clicking a button. More skilled users can do the same by placing a php.ini file with the necessary program code in a particular domain folder. In case you need any help to activate the instrument, you will be able to contact our technical support crew anytime.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You are able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we offer and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do that. Once you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to head to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find many different options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you don't need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you will have to enable Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we have also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific site, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
