Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you would like to protect your custom-written script, for example, you will be able to take advantage of 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. Lots of ready-made script-driven apps, particularly ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to function correctly as their core code is generally not free to modify. Sites that use the tool are typically speedier as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

When you obtain a Linux shared web hosting from our company, you are able to choose the PHP version, which will be active for your account according to what your script apps need. You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel for any of the releases that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this section, you can use a small tool which will allow you to manage the php.ini file for your account and enable or disable PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, which means that you will not need any previous knowledge since enabling Zend Optimizer is as easy as clicking a button. More advanced users can do the same by placing a php.ini file with the needed code in a specific domain folder. In case you need any assistance to activate the tool, you can contact our technical support team anytime.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we offer and it takes just a couple of clicks to do that. When you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you should head to the PHP Configuration section where you will find various options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you will not have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP release for your account through the very same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we have also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific site, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
