Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you want to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you're able to employ Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Many pre-made script-driven apps, especially ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to operate efficiently as their core code is often not free to change. Sites that use the instrument are often faster since their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

When you get a Linux cloud web hosting from our company, you'll be able to pick the PHP release, which will be active for your account depending on what your script apps need. You can activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel for all of the releases that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this section, you're able to use a compact tool which will allow you to control the php.ini file for your account and enable or disable PHP extensions using On and Off buttons, so you won't need any kind of previous knowledge considering that enabling Zend Optimizer will be as easy as clicking a button. More advanced users will be able to do the same thing by adding a php.ini file with the necessary program code in a particular domain folder. In case you need any assistance to activate the tool, you'll be able to contact our technical support team anytime.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide and it takes only a couple of clicks to do that. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to head to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find various options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you will not need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Because you can also change the PHP version for your account through the same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we've also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP release and 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 specific site, but not for the hosting account in general.
