Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you'd like to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you can use 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 website. Countless ready-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to work effectively since their core code is often not free to change. Internet sites that use the instrument are often quicker as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on our in-house built cloud platform and you'll be able to use it whatever the shared hosting plan that you choose. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all of the accounts and it'll take you as little as several clicks to do this. Since we support numerous versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you switch 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 software instrument, so you do not need any programming skills or previous practical experience. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without troubles, yet if you're unsure what to do, you can contact our 24/7 tech support crew and they'll activate the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

Zend Optimizer is featured on all of the servers that comprise our cluster website hosting platform, therefore you are able to use it for your script-driven applications with all of our semi-dedicated server packages. It will be available at all times even if you switch the PHP version for your account since our feature-rich platform will allow you to choose from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Both changing your 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 which is used to take care of the semi-dedicated accounts. What is more, you may even employ a different version of PHP and activate or deactivate Zend for each individual website that you host in your account. This is possible by employing a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of code in it. In case you do not have previous experience and you are unsure how to do this, our 24/7 tech assistance will assist.
