Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that's required to run files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you need to protect your custom script, for example, you can take advantage of Zend Guard and your 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, particularly ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to function efficiently as their core code is usually not free to change. Websites which use the tool are normally speedier because their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are a part of our modern cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which shared hosting plan you acquire, you will be able to activate the tool to ensure that any kind of script app that needs it will operate perfectly within your account. By using a handy software instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate various functions with a button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your very first web hosting account ever, you will not experience any problems. In the same section you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, which means that any time you move to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Since our platform enables you to take advantage of a couple of PHP releases at once, more advanced users can enable the instrument for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

Zend Optimizer is installed on all of the servers that comprise our cluster hosting platform, which means that you are able to use it for your script-driven apps with all of our semi-dedicated server packages. It is available all the time even if you switch the PHP release for your account because our feature-rich platform allows you to choose from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Both changing the version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes just a few clicks in the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to control the semi-dedicated accounts. Furthermore, you can also use a different version of PHP and activate or deactivate Zend for each individual domain that you host from your account. This is possible by using a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of code inside it. In case you don't have previous experience and you aren't sure how to do this, our 24/7 tech support will assist.
