Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that's needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you wish to protect your custom-made script, for example, you'll be able to 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 blog. Many pre-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to work effectively as their core code is generally not free to change. Internet sites which use the tool are normally faster since their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on our tailor-made cloud platform and you're able to use it whatever the shared web hosting plan that you select. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the accounts and it will take you only a few clicks to do this. Considering that we support a number of different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used so far. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click tool, therefore you don't need any coding skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer with no troubles, but in case you are not sure how to proceed, you can contact our 24/7 tech support crew and they'll activate the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that comprise our cluster hosting platform, therefore you can use it for all your script-driven applications with all of our semi-dedicated server plans. It is available at all times even when you switch the PHP version for your account as our feature-rich platform will allow you to choose from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Both changing the version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes a couple of clicks in the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to take care of the semi-dedicated accounts. Furthermore, you can even employ a different release of PHP and enable or disable Zend for every single website that you host in your account. This is possible by employing a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of program code in it. If you do not have previous experience and you are unsure how to do this, our 24/7 technical support will assist.
