Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that's required to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you want to protect your custom script, for instance, you'll be able to use Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Countless ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to function properly as their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Internet sites that use the instrument are normally faster as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
Zend Optimizer is available on our in-house built cloud platform and you'll be able to use it whatever the shared hosting package that you select. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all accounts and it'll take you only a few clicks to do that. Given that we support numerous versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll need to activate Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you haven't used so far. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click instrument, and you will not need any programming skills or previous practical experience. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer with no troubles, yet when you are unsure how to proceed, you will be able to contact our 24/7 tech support team and they can activate the instrument for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We've set up Zend Optimizer on all the servers that are part of our hi-tech cloud website hosting platform and since all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you can activate and use Zend for any kind of script app which you'd like to use with no more than a single click. You can also pick the PHP version that will be active for your account, so if you move to a new release, you just need to go to the Advanced part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it's as easy as that. In case you change the version back, Zend will already be active. More tech-savvy users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP release and to activate Zend Optimizer just for a separate website by putting a php.ini file with the required code inside the corresponding domain folder.
