Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that's required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you want to protect your custom-made script, for example, you are able to 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 website. A large number of pre-made script-driven applications, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to function efficiently as their core code is usually not free to change. Sites that use the instrument are typically speedier because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers which are a part of our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform. No matter which shared web hosting plan you select, you can activate the software tool so that any script application that needs it will work properly in your account. Using a handy software tool in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate various options with a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your very first web hosting account ever, you won't encounter any issues. In the exact same section you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, and each time you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. As our platform allows you to employ a couple of PHP releases at once, more advanced users can enable the tool for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we offer and it will take you just a few clicks to do that. After you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to head to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find many different options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you won't have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP version for your account from the same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we've also left the option for more experienced users to set both the PHP release 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 website, but not for the website hosting account in general.
