Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you would like to protect your custom-made script, for example, you are able to use Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Many ready-made script-driven apps, in particular ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to work efficiently because their core code is often not free to modify. Websites which use the tool are generally speedier as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
All shared hosting accounts that we provide are generated on our leading-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers that are a part of the clusters. Therefore, you're able to install and run script-driven apps which require Zend regardless of the package that you choose upon signup. The easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel which is included with the accounts shall make the management of your web presence very simple and enabling Zend Optimizer makes no exception as it'll take only a single click to do it. Furthermore, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and enable Zend just for a particular domain name. Because you can switch between a variety of PHP versions, you'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer for any of them in exactly the same way and run both new and older applications within the same account.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You are able to activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you just a few clicks to do that. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find many different options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you do not have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP release for your account through the very same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we've also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP release 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 website hosting account in general.
