Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you'd like to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you'll be able to employ 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 pre-made script-driven applications, especially ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to work effectively because their core code is usually not free to modify. Websites that use the instrument are usually faster as their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers that are part of our modern cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which shared web hosting plan you get, you'll be able to take advantage of the tool to ensure that any script app that requires it will operate flawlessly within your account. Using a handy software tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the website hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate a variety of settings with a button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you will not encounter any issues. In the very same section you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, which means that any time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Since our platform allows you to take advantage of a couple of PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can activate the tool for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

Zend Optimizer is present on all servers that comprise our cluster web hosting platform, which means that you'll be able to use it for your script-driven applications with all of our semi-dedicated server plans. It will be available all the time even if you switch the PHP release for your account since our feature-rich platform allows you to select from 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 couple of clicks in the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the semi-dedicated accounts. In addition, you may even use a different release of PHP and enable or disable Zend for every single website that you host in your account. This is possible by employing a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of program code inside it. In case you don't have previous experience and you are not sure how to do that, our 24/7 technical support can help you.
