Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you want to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you're 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. Lots of pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to work correctly since their core code is usually not free to modify. Internet sites that use the instrument are usually quicker because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We have set up Zend Optimizer on all of the servers that are a part of our hi-tech cloud hosting platform and since all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you'll be able to activate and take advantage of Zend for any script app that you want to use with no more than a single click. In addition, you can select the PHP version that will be active for your account, so if you move to another version, you only need to go to the Advanced section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it is as easy as that. In case you change the version back, Zend will already be active. More experienced users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP release and to enable Zend Optimizer just for a separate site by putting a php.ini file with the needed program code in the corresponding domain folder.
