Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's required to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you need to protect your custom-made script, for example, you are able to employ Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A number of ready-made script-driven applications, especially ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to operate efficiently because their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Websites which use the tool are normally faster because their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer can be found on our custom cloud platform and you're able to use it regardless of the website hosting
plan that you choose. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the accounts and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do this. Considering that we support a number of different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you have not used so far. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click software tool, so you won't need any computer programming skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without difficulties, but when you're unsure what you should do, you will be able to contact our 24/7 technical support team and they can activate the instrument for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have installed Zend Optimizer on all of the servers which are a part of our revolutionary cloud web hosting platform and since all semi-dedicated server
accounts are created on it, you will be able to activate and employ Zend for any kind of script application which you want to use with no more than a single click. In addition, you can pick the PHP release that will be active for your account, therefore if you switch to a different release, you just have to go to the Advanced section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it is as easy as that. In case you switch the version back, Zend will already be active. More experienced users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP release and to enable Zend Optimizer only for a separate website by placing a php.ini file with the needed code in the corresponding domain folder.
