Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you'd like to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you are able to employ Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A lot of pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to function efficiently as their core code is often not free to modify. Websites that use the tool are normally speedier as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
If you acquire a Linux shared package through us, you have the option to choose the PHP release, that will be active for the account depending on what your script apps require. You can activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for any of the releases that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this section, you'll be able to take advantage of a small tool that will allow you to manage the php.ini file for your account and enable or disable PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, therefore you won't need any kind of previous knowledge considering that enabling Zend Optimizer is as easy as clicking a button. More skilled users can do the same by adding a php.ini file with the necessary program code in a particular domain folder. If you need any help to activate the instrument, you'll be able to contact our technical support crew anytime.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we supply and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do this. Once you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you should visit the PHP Configuration section where you can find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is among these options, so you will not need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP version for your account from the same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we've also left the option for more experienced users to set both the PHP release and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific site, but not for the hosting account in general.
