Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that's needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you'd like 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. Numerous pre-made script-driven apps, in particular ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to function efficiently as their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Websites which use the tool are usually faster as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting
When you acquire a shared website hosting plan through our company, you can select the PHP version, which will be active for the account according to what your script apps require. You can activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for any of the versions that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this section, you'll be able to use a compact tool which will allow you to control the php.ini file for the account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions through On and Off buttons, so you won't need any previous knowledge since activating Zend Optimizer is as simple as clicking a button. More advanced users can do the same thing by placing a php.ini file with the required code in a particular domain folder. In case you need any assistance to activate the tool, you are able to contact our technical support team anytime.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we offer and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do that. When you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to go to the PHP Configuration section where you will find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is among these options, which means that you won't need to do anything more complex 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 which you use. Furthermore, we have also left the option for more experienced users to set the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific website, but not for the website hosting account in general.
