Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that's required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you need to protect your custom script, for instance, you're able to employ 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 pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to work efficiently since their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Websites that use the instrument are often quicker because their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom-built cloud platform and you can use it whatever the shared hosting plan that you select. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the accounts and it'll take you just several clicks to do that. Given that we support several different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you haven't used so far. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click instrument, therefore you do not need any programming skills or previous experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application that requires Zend Optimizer without any troubles, but in case you are not sure how to proceed, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they will enable the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that comprise our cluster web hosting platform, therefore you're able to use it for all of your script-driven apps with all of our semi-dedicated server plans. It will be available all of the time even if you change the PHP release for your account as our feature-rich platform allows you to choose between 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 website hosting Control Panel which is used to manage the semi-dedicated accounts. What is more, you can even employ a different version of PHP and enable or disable Zend for each individual site that you host in the account. This is possible by employing a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of code in it. In case you don't have previous experience and you are not sure how to do that, our 24/7 support can help you.
