Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that's needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you'd like to protect your custom script, for instance, you're able to 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 site. Various ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to function properly since their core code is usually not free to change. Websites that use the tool are typically quicker as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Hosting
Zend Optimizer is available on our custom-built cloud platform and you'll be able to use it regardless of the hosting package that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all accounts and it will take you as little as a few clicks to do this. Since we support many different versions 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 so far. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software tool, therefore you don't need any coding skills or previous practical experience. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application that needs Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, yet if you are not sure what you should do, you are able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they will enable the instrument for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have set up Zend Optimizer on all servers that are part of our revolutionary cloud hosting platform and since all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you will be able to enable and use Zend for any kind of script application that you need to use with just a single click. You may also choose the PHP version which will be active for your account, so if you move to a new release, you only need to go to the Advanced section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it is as easy as that. If you change the version back, Zend will already be active. More tech-savvy users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP version and to activate Zend Optimizer only for a single site by placing a php.ini file with the needed program code inside the corresponding domain folder.
