Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that's needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you'd like to protect your custom-made script, for example, you will be able to use Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. A large number of ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to function properly since their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Sites which use the instrument are generally speedier as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

When you purchase a shared hosting from our company, you will be able to choose the PHP release, that will be active for your account depending on what your script applications require. You can activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel for any of the versions that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this area, you'll be able to use a small tool that will allow you to manage the php.ini file for the account and enable or disable PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, therefore you will not need any previous experience considering that enabling Zend Optimizer is as easy as clicking a button. More advanced users will be able to do the same by adding a php.ini file with the required program code in a specific domain folder. In case you need any help to activate the instrument, you'll be able to contact our tech support team anytime.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we offer and it will take you just a few clicks to do that. Once you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you don't have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Because you can also change the PHP release for your account from the same section, you'll have to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we've also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set 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 just for this particular website, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
