Zend Optimizer is a popular software, which is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you want to protect your custom-written script, for example, you will be 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. Lots of pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to function effectively since their core code is usually not free to change. Websites that use the instrument are generally quicker since their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers which are a part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. No matter which shared web hosting
you get, you can take advantage of the instrument to guarantee that any script application that requires it will work properly within your account. Using a convenient software tool in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the web hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate various settings with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your very first hosting account ever, you won't encounter any problems. In the very same section you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, thus any time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform enables you to take advantage of a couple of PHP versions at the same time, more advanced users can activate the instrument for a particular website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We've set up Zend Optimizer on all servers that are 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 use Zend for any script app which you want to use with just a single click. You can also choose the PHP version which will be active for your account, thus if you move to another version, you only need to go to the Advanced section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it's as simple as that. In case you change the version back, Zend will already be active. More tech-savvy users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP version and to activate Zend Optimizer just for a separate site by placing a php.ini file with the required program code inside the corresponding domain folder.
