Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you need to protect your custom script, for example, you will be able to use Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. A large number of pre-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to operate efficiently since their core code is usually not free to change. Websites that use the tool are generally quicker as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers that are part of our modern cloud website hosting platform. No matter which Linux cloud hosting you acquire, you'll be able to take advantage of the software instrument to ensure that any kind of script application that needs it will function perfectly in your account. Using a convenient software instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate a variety of settings with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first website hosting account ever, you won't encounter any troubles. In the same section you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, therefore each time you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. As our platform enables you to employ several PHP versions at the same time, more experienced users can enable the tool for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you just a few clicks to do that. After you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you should visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find many different options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you do not have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP release for your account through the same section, you will have to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we've also left the option for more experienced users to set the PHP release and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific website, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
