Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you wish to protect your custom script, for example, you'll be able to employ Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Countless ready-made script-driven apps, particularly ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to work correctly since their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Sites that use the tool are usually faster since their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

If you buy a Linux shared web hosting from us, you have the option to pick the PHP release, that will be active for the account depending on what your script apps need. You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for all of the releases that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this section, you are able to use a compact software tool which will allow you to handle the php.ini file for your account and enable or disable PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, so you won't need any kind of previous experience considering that activating Zend Optimizer is as easy as clicking a button. More experienced users will be able to do the same thing by adding a php.ini file with the needed program code in a specific domain folder. In case you need any assistance to activate the tool, you will be able to contact our technical support team anytime.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We offer Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated services. It is present on our avant-garde cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven application which you want to use requires it to function, you just need to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also switch the PHP version that your website hosting account uses. For each and every new release that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used versions of PHP, so you will not have to do this every time. In case you have more experience, you'll be able to take full advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file to set a different PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific domain name without the need of altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
