Zend Optimizer is a popular software, which is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you would like to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you'll be able to use 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. Countless ready-made script-driven applications, especially ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to function effectively as their core code is usually not free to change. Sites that use the instrument are typically speedier because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer is available on our custom-made cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the cloud web hosting package that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all accounts and it'll take you just several clicks to do that. Since we support a number of different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to enable Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you haven't used yet. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click tool, so you won't need any kind of computer programming skills or previous experience. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer without difficulties, still if you're not sure what you should do, you'll be able to contact our 24/7 tech support crew and they can enable the instrument for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have set up Zend Optimizer on all servers which are part of our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and considering that all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you will be able to activate and employ Zend for any kind of script app that you wish to use with just a single click. You may also choose the PHP release which will be active for your account, therefore if you move to a new version, you only have 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. If you change the version back, Zend will already be active. More experienced users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP version and to enable Zend Optimizer just for a separate site by putting a php.ini file with the required code inside the corresponding domain folder.
