Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is required to run files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you'd like to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you can employ Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Various ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to operate efficiently as their core code is often not free to modify. Websites that use the tool are usually faster as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our custom-built cloud platform and you're able to use it regardless of the web hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all accounts and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do this. Considering that we support several different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to enable Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you haven't used so far. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click application, therefore you do not need any computer programming skills or previous practical experience. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app that requires Zend Optimizer without troubles, still in case you are not sure what to do, you are able to contact our 24/7 technical support team and they will enable the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We offer Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. It is installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, so if any script-driven application which you need to use requires it to work, you just have to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you can also change the PHP version that your hosting account uses. For each and every new version which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used versions of PHP, which means that you won't need to do this each and every time. If you have more experience, you can benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set a different PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific website without altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
