Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you need to protect your custom script, for example, you will be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Many ready-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to function properly since their core code is generally not free to change. Websites that use the tool are usually faster because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer can be found on our custom cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the web hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the accounts and it will take you only a few clicks to do this. Due to the fact that we support many different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll need to activate Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you haven't used yet. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click instrument, and you will not need any computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, yet in case 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 Hosting
You are able to activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we offer and it'll take you only a few clicks to do that. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to head to the PHP Configuration section where you can find many different options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, so you will not have to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Because you can also change the PHP version for your account from the same section, you'll have to enable Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we have also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular website, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
