Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you need to protect your custom-written script, for example, you're able to use 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. A lot of pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to function efficiently because their core code is usually not free to modify. Sites that use the tool are often speedier as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

If you obtain a shared hosting through our company, you will be able to select the PHP release, that will be active for the account depending on what your script applications need. You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for all of the releases that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this section, you can use a small tool that will allow you to control the php.ini file for the account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions through On and Off buttons, so you won't need any kind of previous experience as enabling Zend Optimizer will be as easy as clicking a button. More advanced users can do the same by placing a php.ini file with the necessary code in a specific domain folder. If you need any help to activate the instrument, you're able to contact our tech support crew at any time.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we supply and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do this. Once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should head to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find various options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is among these options, so you won't have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. As you can also change the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you will have to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we've also left the option for more experienced users to set both the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific website, but not for the hosting account in general.
