Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you want to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you can take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Various ready-made script-driven apps, in particular ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to work effectively as their core code is often not free to modify. Websites that use the tool are typically quicker as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers which are a part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which cloud web hosting you pick, you can take advantage of the instrument to ensure that any kind of script application that needs it will work perfectly in your account. Using a convenient software instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all of the website hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate various options with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you won't encounter any problems. In the same area you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, thus each time you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Since our platform allows you to employ multiple PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the tool for a particular site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated servers. It's installed on our innovative cloud platform, so if any script-driven app which you need to use requires it to function, you just have to enable it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also switch the PHP release that your web hosting account uses. For every new version that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used releases of PHP, therefore you will not need to do that each and every time. In case you have more experience, you can benefit from the versatility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set another PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular website without altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
