Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encodes files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you want to protect your custom-made script, for example, you will be able to employ Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A large number of pre-made script-driven apps, in particular ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to function properly since their core code is generally not free to change. Websites which use the instrument are usually quicker as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

If you buy a Linux shared web hosting from our company, you can choose the PHP version, that will be active for the account depending on what your script apps require. You can activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel for all of the releases that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this section, you're able to take advantage of a compact software tool that will allow you to control the php.ini file for the account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions through On and Off buttons, which means that you won't need any previous experience considering that activating Zend Optimizer is as simple as clicking a button. More skilled users can do the same thing by placing a php.ini file with the needed code in a specific domain folder. If you need any assistance to activate the instrument, you can contact our tech support team at any time.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we offer and it takes only a few clicks to do this. When you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to head to the PHP Configuration section where you can find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you do not need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Because you can also change the PHP release for your account from the same section, you'll need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we've also left the possibility for more experienced users to set both the PHP release and 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 specific website, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
