Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you want to protect your custom script, for instance, you'll be able to employ Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Many pre-made script-driven apps, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to function efficiently because their core code is generally not free to modify. Internet sites that use the instrument are usually speedier because their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

When you acquire a Linux shared hosting package through our company, you can choose the PHP release, which will be active for your account depending on what your script applications require. You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel for all of the versions that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this section, you're able to employ a compact tool which will allow you to handle the php.ini file for your account and enable or disable PHP extensions through On and Off buttons, therefore you won't need any kind of previous knowledge as enabling Zend Optimizer is as easy as clicking a button. More experienced users can do the same thing by placing a php.ini file with the required code in a specific domain folder. If you need any help to activate the instrument, you're able to contact our technical support team at any time.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we offer and it takes only a few clicks to do this. Once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should head to the PHP Configuration section where you will find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is one of these options, so you will not need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP release for your account through the same section, you'll have to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we've also left the option for more experienced users to set both the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular site, but not for the hosting account in general.
