Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you want to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you can employ Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A number of pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to work properly since their core code is usually not free to change. Internet sites which use the tool are often speedier as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on our in-house built cloud platform and you will be able to use it regardless of the shared hosting package that you choose. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all accounts and it will take you only a few clicks to do this. Given that we support numerous versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to activate Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you have not used so far. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click tool, so you won't need any kind of coding skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which needs Zend Optimizer without difficulties, but in case you are not sure what you should do, you are able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they will enable the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We've set up Zend Optimizer on all servers that are part of our revolutionary cloud hosting platform and considering that all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you'll be able to enable and use Zend for any script app which you wish to use with no more than a single click. You may also pick the PHP release that will be active for your account, so if you switch to a different release, you only 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 easy as that. If you change the version back, Zend will already be active. More tech-savvy users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP release and to activate Zend Optimizer only for a single site by putting a php.ini file with the required code inside the corresponding domain folder.
