Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, which is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you would like to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you're able to use 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. Various ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to work properly as their core code is usually not free to modify. Sites that use the tool are usually quicker as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

If you acquire a web hosting through our company, you can choose the PHP version, which will be active for the account based on what your script apps need. You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia web 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 can employ a small software tool that will allow you to manage the php.ini file for the account and enable or disable PHP extensions using On and Off buttons, so you will not need any previous knowledge as activating Zend Optimizer is as easy as clicking a button. More skilled users can do the same by adding a php.ini file with the necessary program code in a specific domain folder. If you need any assistance to activate the tool, you can contact our technical support crew at any time.
