Zend Optimizer is a popular software, which is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The second encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you want to protect your custom-written script, for example, you'll be able to employ 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 website. A number of ready-made script-driven applications, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to function effectively because their core code is usually not free to modify. Websites that use the tool are typically quicker because their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our custom-built cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the cloud hosting package that you choose. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the accounts and it will take you only a few clicks to do this. Due to the fact that we support several different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to enable Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you have not used so far. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click application, so you won't need any programming skills or previous experience. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application that needs Zend Optimizer without any troubles, but if you are not sure what to do, you will be able to contact our 24/7 technical support team and they'll enable the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We offer Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated servers. It is installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven app that you need to use requires it to function, you just need to activate it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also switch the PHP version which your hosting account uses. For each new release that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used releases of PHP, therefore you will not have to do this every time. If you have more experience, you're able to benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set another PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular site without the need of altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
