Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you would like to protect your custom-made script, for example, you'll be able to use Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Many ready-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to function effectively since their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Websites that use the instrument are often speedier because their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

If you obtain a Linux website hosting package through us, you will be able to pick the PHP release, which will be active for the account based on what your script applications require. You can activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel for any 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 employ a compact tool which will allow you to manage the php.ini file for the account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions through On and Off buttons, which means that you will not need any previous experience as activating Zend Optimizer is as easy as clicking a button. More experienced users will be able to do the same thing by adding a php.ini file with the needed program code in a specific domain folder. If you need any help to activate the tool, you will be able to contact our technical support team anytime.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we offer and it'll take you just a few clicks to do this. After you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to head to the PHP Configuration section where you will find various options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is among these options, so you won't have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP release for your account through the same section, you will need to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we have also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP version 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 hosting account in general.
