Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you need to protect your custom-made script, for example, you'll 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 website. A large number of ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to function properly because their core code is generally not free to modify. Internet sites which use the instrument are usually faster since their code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers which are a part of our innovative cloud hosting platform. No matter which Linux shared website hosting you obtain, you can activate the software instrument to ensure that any kind of script app which requires it will function flawlessly within your account. By using a convenient instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate different settings with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your first hosting account ever, you will not have any difficulties. In the very same section you can also select the PHP release 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 click. Because our platform allows you to use a couple of PHP releases at once, more experienced users can activate the tool for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Zend Optimizer is present on all servers that comprise our cluster hosting platform, therefore you'll be able to use it for your script-driven applications with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. It'll be available all the time even when you change the PHP version 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 your version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes just a couple of clicks in the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the semi-dedicated accounts. In addition, you may also use a different release of PHP and activate or deactivate Zend for each individual site that you host in your account. This is possible by using a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of code inside it. In case you do not have previous experience and you are unsure how to do this, our 24/7 support will assist.
