Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you wish to protect your custom-made script, for example, you will be able to use Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Countless pre-made script-driven applications, especially ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to function properly since their core code is often not free to change. Internet sites which use the tool are usually faster as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Hosting
Zend Optimizer can be found on our in-house made cloud platform and you'll be able to use it regardless of the hosting plan that you select. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the accounts and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do that. Considering that we support a number of different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll need to activate Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you haven't used so far. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software instrument, so you don't need any computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application that requires Zend Optimizer without troubles, but in case you are unsure how to proceed, you will be able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support team and they'll activate the instrument for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated hosting. It is present on our revolutionary cloud platform, so if any script-driven application which you want to use requires it to function, you just need to enable it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also switch the PHP version that your hosting account uses. For each new release that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used releases of PHP, so you won't have to do that each time. If you have more experience, you'll be able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific site without the need of altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
