Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you'd like to protect your custom-written script, for example, you'll be able to employ Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A lot of ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to operate efficiently because their core code is generally not free to change. Websites which use the tool are generally quicker since their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

If you buy a Linux website hosting from us, you'll be able to select the PHP version, that will be active for the account based on what your script applications need. You can activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel for any of the versions that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this section, you are able to use a compact tool that will allow you to control the php.ini file for your account and enable or disable PHP extensions using On and Off buttons, therefore you won't need any kind of previous knowledge because activating Zend Optimizer will be as simple as clicking a button. More advanced users will be able to do the same by adding a php.ini file with the needed code in a particular domain folder. If you need any assistance to activate the instrument, you'll be able to contact our technical support crew anytime.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do that. Once you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find many different options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, therefore you will not have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. As you can also change the PHP version for your account from the same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we've also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP version 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 only for this particular website, but not for the web hosting account in general.
