Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you want to protect your custom-written script, for example, you're able to take advantage of 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. Countless pre-made script-driven applications, especially ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to work properly as their core code is usually not free to change. Internet sites that use the tool are often faster as their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated services. It is installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, so if any script-driven app which you'd like to use requires it to function, you just have to enable it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also switch the PHP release which your hosting account uses. For each and every new release that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used versions of PHP, which means that you will not have to do that every time. In case you have more experience, you are able to take advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file to set another PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular site without altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
