Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The second encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you wish to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you'll be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A lot of pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to work effectively because their core code is often not free to modify. Websites that use the instrument are usually quicker as their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our custom-built cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the shared web hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all accounts and it'll take you just several clicks to do that. Since we support many different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to enable Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you haven't used yet. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click instrument, so you will not need any kind of computer programming skills or previous practical experience. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application which needs Zend Optimizer with no troubles, but when you are unsure how to proceed, you will be able to contact our 24/7 tech support team and they'll enable the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We have installed Zend Optimizer on all servers which are a part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and since all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you will be able to activate and take advantage of Zend for any kind of script app that you'd like to use with just a single click. You can also pick the PHP release which will be active for your account, thus if you move to another release, you just need to go to the Advanced section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it's as simple as that. In case you change the version back, Zend will already be active. More experienced users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP release and to enable Zend Optimizer only for a separate website by placing a php.ini file with the required code inside the corresponding domain folder.
