Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you want to protect your custom-written script, for example, you'll be able to use 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 site. A number of ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to function effectively since their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Internet sites that use the tool are generally quicker as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers which are part of our modern cloud website hosting platform. No matter which cloud website hosting plan you choose, you will be able to activate the instrument so that any script app which needs it will work properly as part of your account. By using a handy software instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate a variety of functions with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your first hosting account ever, you will not have any troubles. In the same section you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, thus whenever you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. As our platform enables you to use several PHP releases simultaneously, more experienced users can activate the instrument for a particular site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we offer and it will take you just a few clicks to do that. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find various options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is among these options, therefore you don't need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. As you can also change the PHP release for your account through the same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we've also left the possibility for more experienced users to set both the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific website, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
