Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that is required to run files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes 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-written script, for example, you're able to employ Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Various ready-made script-driven apps, in particular ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to operate correctly as their core code is often not free to modify. Websites that use the instrument are generally quicker as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

If you get a shared web hosting service from our company, you are able to choose the PHP version, that will be active for the account depending on what your script applications 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 offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this area, you are able to take advantage of a small software tool that will allow you to handle the php.ini file for the account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, so you won't need any kind of previous experience considering that activating Zend Optimizer will be as simple as clicking a button. More experienced users can do the same by adding a php.ini file with the required code in a particular 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

You are able to enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we offer and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do this. When you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you should head to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find many different options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is among these options, so you won't need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP version for your account from the very same section, you will have to enable Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we have also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP release as well as 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 specific site, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
