Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that's needed to run files protected with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you would like to protect your custom script, for example, you'll be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A large number of pre-made script-driven applications, especially ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to work correctly because their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Internet sites that use the instrument are normally quicker because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer can be found on our in-house built cloud platform and you're able to use it regardless of the shared website hosting package that you choose. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all accounts and it'll take you as little as a couple of clicks to do that. Because we support several different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to enable Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you haven't used yet. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click instrument, and you won't need any kind of computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app that needs Zend Optimizer without troubles, still if you are unsure what to do, you will be able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support team and they can activate the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We've set up Zend Optimizer on all of the servers that are part of our innovative cloud hosting platform and since all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you can enable and employ Zend for any script application which you'd like to use with no more than a click. You can also pick the PHP release which will be active for your account, so if you move to a new version, you only need to go to the Advanced section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it's as easy as that. If you switch the version back, Zend will already be active. More tech-savvy users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP version and to enable Zend Optimizer only for a single site by putting a php.ini file with the required program code in the corresponding domain folder.
