Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 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 instance, you'll be able to employ Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A number of ready-made script-driven apps, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to operate properly since their core code is usually not free to modify. Sites which use the tool are normally quicker because their code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is present on our custom-made cloud platform and you are able to use it whatever the shared website hosting
plan that you choose. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the accounts and it'll take you only a few clicks to do this. Since we support a number of different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to enable Zend Optimizer every 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 enable and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software tool, therefore you do not need any kind of computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which needs Zend Optimizer without any difficulties, but when you're not sure what to do, you can get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they will activate the instrument for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We've installed Zend Optimizer on all of the servers which are part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server
accounts are created on it, you will be able to activate and take advantage of Zend for any script application that you'd like to use with just a click. You may also select the PHP version that will be active for your account, thus if you move to a new release, you only need to go to the Advanced section of your Hepsia website 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 version and to activate Zend Optimizer just for a separate site by putting a php.ini file with the required program code inside the corresponding domain folder.
