Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you need to protect your custom-made script, for example, you're able to use 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 blog. A lot of pre-made script-driven applications, in particular ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to work properly as their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Sites which use the instrument are generally faster as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all servers that are part of our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which hosting you choose, you'll be able to take advantage of the software tool to guarantee that any script app which needs it will function perfectly as part of your account. By using a convenient instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the website hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate different functions with a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you won't have any issues. In the exact same section you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, so whenever you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform allows you to employ a couple of PHP versions simultaneously, more advanced users can enable the instrument for a particular website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated servers. It's available on our avant-garde cloud platform, so if any script-driven application which you need to use requires it to function, you just have to enable it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you can also switch the PHP version which your hosting account uses. For each new version that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used versions of PHP, therefore you won't need to do this each time. If you have more experience, you can take full advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set another PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular domain without altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
