Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that's required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you need to protect your custom script, for instance, you are able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Countless pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to function correctly because their core code is often not free to change. Sites that use the instrument are usually quicker as their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

If you purchase a Linux hosting from our company, you can select the PHP version, that will be active for your account according to what your script applications need. You can activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for all of the releases that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this section, you'll be able to use a compact tool that will allow you to control the php.ini file for your account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, therefore you will not need any previous experience considering that enabling Zend Optimizer is as simple as clicking a button. More skilled users can do the same by placing a php.ini file with the needed code in a specific domain folder. In case you need any assistance to activate the tool, you are able to contact our technical support crew at any time.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we provide and it takes just a few clicks to do this. Once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to visit the PHP Configuration section where you can find many different options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is one of these options, so you do not have to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the same section, you will have to enable Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we have also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP version and 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 specific site, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
