Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that's required to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes 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 script, for example, you are able to employ Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Many pre-made script-driven applications, especially ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to work correctly because their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Sites that use the instrument are normally quicker since their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

If you buy a website hosting plan from our company, you have the option to select the PHP version, which will be active for the account according to what your script applications require. You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel for any of the releases that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this area, you're able to take advantage of a small software tool that will allow you to handle the php.ini file for the account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions through On and Off buttons, which means that you will not need any previous knowledge since enabling Zend Optimizer will be as simple as clicking a button. More advanced users will be able to do the same thing by placing a php.ini file with the necessary code in a particular domain folder. If you need any help to activate the instrument, you will be able to contact our technical support team at any time.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we provide and it takes only a few clicks to do this. When you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to visit the PHP Configuration section where you will find various options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among 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 through the same section, you'll have to enable Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we have also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP version 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 particular site, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
