Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you'd like to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you will be able to use 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. Various ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to work correctly as their core code is often not free to modify. Websites which use the tool are usually speedier since their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

All cloud website hosting accounts that we offer are set up on our advanced cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is set up on all of the servers which are part of the clusters. For that reason, you're able to set up and run script-driven apps which need Zend regardless of the package that you choose upon registration. The easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel that comes with the accounts will make the management of your web presence very simple and enabling Zend Optimizer makes no exception due to the fact that it'll take just a single click to do this. In addition, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a given domain folder and use Zend only for a particular domain name. Because you can switch between many different PHP releases, you can enable Zend Optimizer for them in exactly the same way and run both new and older apps from the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on all servers that comprise our cluster web hosting platform, so you are able to use it for all of your script-driven applications with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. It will be available all of the time even if you switch the PHP version for your account since our feature-rich platform will allow you to choose from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Both changing your version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes a couple of clicks in the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel that is used to control the semi-dedicated accounts. What is more, you can also use a different version of PHP and activate or deactivate Zend for every single website that you host in the account. This is possible by using a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of program code in it. In case you do not have previous experience and you are not sure how to do that, our 24/7 technical support can help you.
