Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you'd like to protect your custom script, for instance, you're able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A lot of ready-made script-driven applications, especially ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to operate properly since their core code is often not free to change. Internet sites which use the instrument are usually faster since their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

When you purchase a website hosting plan from us, you'll be able to pick the PHP release, that will be active for the account based on what your script apps need. You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel for all of the versions that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this section, you are able to take advantage of a small tool which will allow you to handle the php.ini file for the account and enable or disable PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, so you won't need any previous experience considering that enabling Zend Optimizer will be as simple as clicking a button. More skilled users will be able to do the same thing by adding a php.ini file with the necessary code in a specific domain folder. If you need any help to activate the instrument, you are able to contact our technical support crew anytime.
