Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encodes files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you wish to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you'll be able to employ Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A lot of ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to work effectively because their core code is generally not free to change. Websites which use the instrument are normally faster since their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

If you get a shared web hosting through our company, you will be able to pick the PHP release, which will be active for the account depending on what your script applications need. You can activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced section 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. When you go to this area, you will be able to use a compact 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 activating Zend Optimizer is as easy as clicking a button. More advanced users can do the same thing by adding a php.ini file with the necessary program code in a particular domain folder. If you need any help to activate the instrument, you can contact our technical support crew at any time.
