Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you want to protect your custom script, for example, you're able to employ Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Numerous pre-made script-driven apps, especially ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to work correctly because their core code is usually not free to modify. Sites that use the tool are typically faster because their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer can be found on our custom cloud platform and you'll be able to use it regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the accounts and it'll take you just a few clicks to do this. Because we support a number of different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to enable Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you have not used yet. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software tool, so you won't need any computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which needs Zend Optimizer with no troubles, but when you are not sure what you should do, you can get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they can enable the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated plans. It's present on our avant-garde cloud platform, so if any script-driven app that you wish to use requires it to function, you just have to enable it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you can also change the PHP release which your website hosting account uses. For every new version that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia will remember your choice for previously used releases of PHP, therefore you will not have to do this every time. In case you have more experience, you are able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file to set another PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific site without the need of altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
