Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that is required to run files protected with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you want to protect your custom script, for example, you will 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 large number of ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to operate efficiently as their core code is generally not free to change. Sites that use the tool are generally quicker since their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

All the web hosting accounts which we offer are created on our leading-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are a part of the clusters. Because of this, you are able to install and execute script-driven applications that need Zend whatever the package that you pick upon signup. The intuitive Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with the accounts shall make the management of your online presence a piece of cake and enabling Zend Optimizer is not an exception because it will take a single click to do it. Furthermore, more experienced users can also put a php.ini file in a given domain folder and enable Zend only for a specific domain. Because you can switch between a variety of PHP versions, you will be able to enable Zend Optimizer for all of them in exactly the same way and run both new and older applications from the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we supply and it takes only a couple of clicks to do that. Once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to head to the PHP Configuration section where you can find many different options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, therefore you do not need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP release for your account from the same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we've also left the option for more experienced users to set the PHP release and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific website, but not for the hosting account in general.
