Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you wish to protect your custom script, for example, you can use 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 ready-made script-driven applications, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to operate correctly as their core code is usually not free to change. Internet sites which use the tool are generally faster since their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers that are part of our advanced cloud web hosting platform. No matter which shared hosting you acquire, you can take advantage of the tool so that any kind of script app which needs it will function perfectly within your account. Using a handy software tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all of the web hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate different settings with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this is your very first web hosting account ever, you won't experience any troubles. In the same area you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, therefore any time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Because our platform allows you to work with multiple PHP releases at the same time, more experienced users can activate the tool for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we provide and it takes just a couple of clicks to do this. Once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to go to the PHP Configuration section where you can find various options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you don't need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you'll have to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we have also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP release as well as 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 particular website, but not for the hosting account as a whole.
