Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, which is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you need to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you are able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A large number of pre-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to operate correctly since their core code is often not free to change. Sites that use the instrument are normally quicker because their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer can be found on our custom-made cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the shared hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all of the accounts and it'll take you only several clicks to do that. Considering that we support many different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to activate Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you haven't used so far. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software tool, and you don't need any computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app that requires Zend Optimizer without troubles, yet in case you are unsure what you should do, you can get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they can activate the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

Zend Optimizer is featured on all servers that comprise our cluster web hosting platform, therefore you will be able to use it for your script-driven apps with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. It is available at all times even if you switch the PHP release for your account since our feature-rich platform will allow you to choose between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Both changing the version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes a few clicks in the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to take care of the semi-dedicated accounts. Furthermore, you can even use a different version of PHP and enable or disable Zend for every single site that you host in your account. This is possible by using a php.ini file in a domain folder with just a few lines of code inside it. If you don't have previous experience and you are unsure how to do that, our 24/7 technical support can help you.
