Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you'd like to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you will be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Numerous pre-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to function correctly because their core code is generally not free to modify. Websites that use the tool are generally speedier as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are part of our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform. No matter which Linux shared hosting package
you choose, you will be able to take advantage of the instrument to guarantee that any script application which needs it will work flawlessly in your account. Using a convenient software instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate a variety of options with a button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your very first website hosting account ever, you won't have any difficulties. In the very same section you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, so any time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform allows you to take advantage of several PHP versions at the same time, more advanced users can activate the instrument for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Zend Optimizer is present on all of the servers that comprise our cluster web hosting platform, so you can use it for all of your script-driven apps with all of our semi-dedicated server
packages. It will be available all the time even when you change the PHP release 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 a few clicks in the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to control the semi-dedicated accounts. In addition, you may also employ a different version of PHP and enable or disable Zend for every single domain that you host in the account. This is possible by using a php.ini file in a domain folder with several lines of code inside it. If you don't have previous experience and you are unsure how to do this, our 24/7 support can help you.
