Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you need to protect your custom script, for example, you can employ Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Lots of ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to work correctly as their core code is generally not free to change. Sites which use the tool are normally faster as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

When you obtain a Linux cloud website hosting through us, you have the option to pick the PHP version, which will be active for the account depending on what your script apps need. You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for all of the versions that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this area, you'll be able to take advantage of a small software tool that will allow you to handle the php.ini file for your account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions through On and Off buttons, so you won't need any previous knowledge because enabling Zend Optimizer is as easy as clicking a button. More skilled users will be able to do the same by adding a php.ini file with the required program code in a specific domain folder. In case you need any help to activate the instrument, you'll be able to contact our technical support team at any time.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we offer and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do this. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should head to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you do not have to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. As you can also change the PHP release for your account from the same section, you will have to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we've also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular site, but not for the website hosting account in general.
