Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you wish to protect your custom script, for example, you will be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Various pre-made script-driven applications, particularly ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to operate correctly because their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Internet sites which use the tool are often quicker as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
Zend Optimizer comes with all servers that are a part of our modern cloud hosting platform. No matter which Linux shared service you select, you will be able to use the tool to ensure that any script application that needs it will operate perfectly as part of your account. Using a convenient software instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the web hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate a variety of functions with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your first web hosting account ever, you will not experience any difficulties. In the exact same section you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, which means that any time you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform enables you to work with several PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the instrument for a particular website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We have set up Zend Optimizer on all the servers that are a part of our top-notch cloud hosting platform and since all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you can activate and use Zend for any script application that you wish to use with no more than a single click. You may also pick the PHP release that will be active for your account, so if you move to some other version, you only have to go to the Advanced section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it's as simple as that. If you switch the version back, Zend will already be active. More tech-savvy users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP release and to activate Zend Optimizer only for a single website by putting a php.ini file with the needed program code inside the corresponding domain folder.
