Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you'd like to protect your custom script, for instance, you will be able to use 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 site. A lot of pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to work correctly because their core code is often not free to modify. Websites which use the tool are generally quicker since their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers which are a part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux cloud hosting plan you acquire, you'll be able to take advantage of the software tool so that any script app that needs it will operate flawlessly as part of your account. Using a convenient software instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate many different options with a button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you will not encounter any problems. In the same section you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, and any time you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Because our platform enables you to take advantage of multiple PHP releases at the same time, more advanced users can activate the tool for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

Zend Optimizer is present on all the servers that comprise our cluster hosting platform, therefore you are able to use it for your script-driven applications with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. It'll be available all the time even when you change the PHP version for your account as our feature-rich platform allows 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 just 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. What's more, you may also employ a different release of PHP and enable or disable Zend for each individual domain 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 code inside it. In case you don't have previous experience and you aren't sure how to do that, our 24/7 technical support can help you.
