Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you wish to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you can employ Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Various pre-made script-driven applications, especially ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to work effectively because their core code is usually not free to modify. Internet sites that use the tool are typically quicker as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We provide Zend Optimizer with all our semi-dedicated hosting. It's installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven application that you need to use requires it to work, you just have to enable it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you can also change the PHP version which your website hosting account uses. For each and every new version that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia will remember your choice for previously used releases of PHP, so you won't need to do that each time. If you have more experience, you are able to benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set another PHP version and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific website without altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
