Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you'd like to protect your custom-made script, for example, you are able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Many ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to function efficiently as their core code is often not free to modify. Sites which use the instrument are often quicker since their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting accounts which we provide are created on our leading-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers which are part of the clusters. Consequently, you'll be able to install and run script-driven apps which need Zend whatever the plan that you choose upon signup. The user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with the accounts shall make the management of your web presence very simple and activating Zend Optimizer makes no exception due to the fact that it will take just a single click to do it. Of course, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a specific domain folder and take advantage of Zend only for a particular domain. Because you can switch between a number of PHP releases, you will be able to enable Zend Optimizer for them in exactly the same way and run both new and older applications in the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You are able to activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do this. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to visit the PHP Configuration section where you will find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you won't need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP version for your account from the same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we've also left the option for more experienced users to set the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific website, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
