Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you need to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you're able to employ Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A lot of pre-made script-driven applications, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to work correctly because their core code is often not free to modify. Websites which use the tool are usually quicker because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on our custom-made cloud platform and you will be able to use it regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the accounts and it will take you as little as several clicks to do that. Because we support a number of different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to activate Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you have not used so far. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click application, therefore you don't need any kind of computer programming skills or previous experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application which needs Zend Optimizer without difficulties, but when you are not sure how to proceed, you'll be able to contact our 24/7 technical support crew and they will enable the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We've set up Zend Optimizer on all servers which are part of our innovative cloud hosting platform and since all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you will be able to enable and use Zend for any script app which you'd like to use with just a single click. You can also choose the PHP version that will be active for your account, thus if you switch to a new release, you just need to go to the Advanced part of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it is as easy as that. If you switch the version back, Zend will already be active. More tech-savvy users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP version and to enable Zend Optimizer just for a single site by placing a php.ini file with the needed code in the corresponding domain folder.
