Zend Optimizer is a helpful software tool which will improve the functionality your PHP applications. Discover why and how to activate it.
Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that's required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you need to protect your custom-written script, for example, you are able to employ 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 number of pre-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to work efficiently since their core code is generally not free to change. Internet sites which use the instrument are usually faster as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

If you buy a Linux cloud package
through our company, you have the option to pick the PHP release, which will be active for the account according to what your script apps need. You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel for all of the versions that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this section, you'll be able to employ a compact software tool which will allow you to handle the php.ini file for the account and enable or disable PHP extensions using On and Off buttons, which means that you will not need any previous knowledge since enabling Zend Optimizer is as easy as clicking a button. More skilled users will be able to do the same thing by adding a php.ini file with the needed program code in a particular domain folder.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You are able to enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server
that we offer and it takes only a couple of clicks to do this. Once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you should head to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find various options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is among these options, so you do not need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP release for your account from the very same section, you'll have to enable Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we've also left the option for more experienced users to set both the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific site, but not for the hosting account in general.
