Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you would like to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you're able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Lots of ready-made script-driven apps, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to operate correctly because their core code is generally not free to modify. Sites which use the instrument are typically speedier as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is available on our in-house built cloud platform and you can use it whatever the cloud website hosting
plan that you choose. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all accounts and it will take you just several clicks to do this. Since we support a number of different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to activate Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you haven't used so far. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click instrument, so you do not need any coding skills or previous expertise. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer with no troubles, still in case you're not sure how to proceed, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support team and they will enable the instrument for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We offer Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages
. It is installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven app which you want to use requires it to work, you just have to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also change the PHP version which your hosting account uses. For each new version that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used versions of PHP, so you won't need to do this every time. In the event that you have more experience, you're able to take advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular site without the need of altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
