Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you want to protect your custom script, for instance, you will be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A number of ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to operate effectively as their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Sites which use the tool are often quicker since their code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are a part of our advanced cloud hosting platform. No matter which website hosting plan you obtain, you'll be able to activate the tool so that any kind of script app which needs it will operate flawlessly as part of your account. By using a convenient tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate a variety of options with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first hosting account ever, you will not have any troubles. In the same area you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, thus whenever you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Since our platform enables you to take advantage of a couple of PHP releases simultaneously, more advanced users can enable the tool for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You are able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you only a few clicks to do that. After you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find many different options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you don't need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we have also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP release and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular website, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
