Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that's required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you would like to protect your custom script, for instance, you're able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Numerous pre-made script-driven applications, especially ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to work properly because their core code is often not free to change. Internet sites that use the instrument are usually faster as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer can be found on our tailor-made cloud platform and you're able to use it whatever the shared website hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the accounts and it will take you only a few clicks to do this. Given that we support many different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to activate Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you haven't used yet. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click software tool, so you don't need any kind of computer programming skills or previous practical experience. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app which needs Zend Optimizer without any troubles, yet when you're unsure what you should do, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they can activate the tool for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You are able to activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do that. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should go to the PHP Configuration section where you can find various options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you don't need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the very same section, you will need to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we have also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP version as well as 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 website, but not for the web hosting account in general.
