Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that is required to run files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you'd like to protect your custom-written script, for example, you're 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 website. A large number of pre-made script-driven applications, particularly ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to function efficiently since their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Websites which use the instrument are often quicker since their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

All the shared web hosting accounts which we provide are generated on our leading-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers which are part of the clusters. Consequently, you can set up and execute script-driven applications which need Zend irrespective of the package that you select upon signup. The user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel that comes with the accounts will make the management of your web presence a piece of cake and enabling Zend Optimizer makes no exception since it will take a single click to do this. Of course, more experienced users can also insert a php.ini file in a given domain folder and enable Zend just for a particular domain name. As you can switch between many different PHP releases, you can enable Zend Optimizer for any of them in the very same way and run both new and older applications from the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We provide Zend Optimizer with all our semi-dedicated servers. It's installed on our innovative cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven app that you'd like to use requires it to function, you just need to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also change the PHP version which your hosting account uses. For each and every new release that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia will remember your choice for previously used releases of PHP, which means that you won't have to do this every time. In case you have more experience, you are able to take advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set a different PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific domain without altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
