Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, which is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you'd like to protect your custom-made script, for example, you'll be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Lots of pre-made script-driven applications, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to operate correctly as their core code is generally not free to modify. Sites that use the instrument are normally speedier because their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

If you acquire a shared web hosting plan from us, you will be able to select the PHP version, that will be active for your account based on what your script applications need. You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel for all of the versions that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this section, you're able to employ a small software tool which will allow you to manage the php.ini file for your account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions using On and Off buttons, so you will not need any previous knowledge since activating Zend Optimizer is as easy as clicking a button. More experienced users can do the same thing by placing a php.ini file with the needed code in a specific domain folder. In case you need any assistance to activate the instrument, you're able to contact our technical support crew at any time.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we supply and it takes only a couple of clicks to do this. After you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you should go to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find various options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you will not need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP version for your account from the very same section, you will have to activate Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we have 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 particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific website, but not for the hosting account as a whole.
