Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you wish to protect your custom script, for instance, you will be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Numerous ready-made script-driven apps, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to operate properly since their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Internet sites which use the instrument are typically speedier as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

When you get a shared plan from our company, you have the option to choose the PHP version, which will be active for the account according to what your script apps need. You can activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel for any of the versions that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this area, you are able to employ a small software tool that will allow you to control the php.ini file for the account and enable or disable PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, which means that you will not need any kind of previous knowledge as activating Zend Optimizer is as simple as clicking a button. More advanced users will be able to do the same by placing a php.ini file with the necessary program code in a specific domain folder. In case you need any assistance to activate the tool, you can contact our technical support crew anytime.
