Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you would like to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you are able to take advantage of 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 pre-made script-driven apps, in particular ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to function efficiently as their core code is generally not free to modify. Sites which use the instrument are typically speedier as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
If you acquire a Linux shared service from our company, you can select the PHP version, that will be active for the account based on what your script applications need. You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel for all of the releases that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this area, you can use a small tool that will allow you to manage the php.ini file for the account and enable or disable PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, so you won't need any kind of previous experience considering that enabling Zend Optimizer will be as simple as clicking a button. More skilled users can do the same thing by placing a php.ini file with the necessary code in a particular domain folder. If you need any assistance to activate the instrument, you can contact our tech support team anytime.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you just a few clicks to do this. After you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to go to the PHP Configuration section where you will find various options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you won't need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP release for your account through the same section, you'll have to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we've also left the option for more experienced users to set the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular site, but not for the hosting account as a whole.
