Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is required to run files protected with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you'd like to protect your custom script, for instance, you will be able to use Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Numerous pre-made script-driven apps, especially ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to work efficiently as their core code is often not free to modify. Websites which use the tool are usually speedier as their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

All of the cloud hosting accounts that we offer are created on our state-of-the-art cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers which are a part of the clusters. Consequently, you'll be able to set up and execute script-driven applications that require Zend irrespective of the package that you pick upon signup. The user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel that comes with the accounts shall make the management of your web presence a breeze and activating Zend Optimizer makes no exception due to the fact that it'll take only a single click to do it. Of course, more experienced users can also put a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and take advantage of Zend only for a particular domain. Since you can switch between many different PHP versions, you will be able to enable Zend Optimizer for any of them in the very same way and run both new and older applications in the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we offer and it'll take you only a few clicks to do this. Once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to head to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you don't need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Because you can also change the PHP version for your account through the same section, you'll have to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we have also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP release 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 just for this specific site, but not for the hosting account as a whole.
