Zend Optimizer is a popular software, which is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you would like to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you will be able to take advantage of 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 blog. A large number of ready-made script-driven apps, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to work effectively since their core code is usually not free to modify. Internet sites which use the instrument are often quicker because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer can be found on our in-house built cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the cloud hosting package that you choose. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the accounts and it will take you as little as a few clicks to do this. Given that we support many different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll need to enable Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used so far. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software tool, and you don't need any kind of programming skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without troubles, yet if you're unsure what you should do, you'll be able to contact our 24/7 technical support team and they can enable the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We have set up Zend Optimizer on all the servers which are a part of our top-notch cloud web hosting platform and due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you will be able to activate and use Zend for any kind of script app that you'd like to use with just a click. You may also pick the PHP version that will be active for your account, therefore if you switch to another version, you just need to go to the Advanced part 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 switch the version back, Zend will already be active. More tech-savvy users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP release and to activate Zend Optimizer just for a single site by placing a php.ini file with the required program code inside the corresponding domain folder.
