Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you need to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you're able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A large number of ready-made script-driven applications, particularly ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to function correctly as their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Sites which use the tool are often quicker since their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers which are part of our modern cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which cloud web hosting service you select, you can take advantage of the instrument so that any script app that requires it will operate properly in your account. Using a handy instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all of the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate a variety of options with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first web hosting account ever, you won't encounter any difficulties. In the exact same section you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, and whenever you change to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. As our platform allows you to work with multiple PHP releases at the same time, more experienced users can activate the instrument for a particular website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we offer and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do that. After you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you should head to the PHP Configuration section where you will find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you won't have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP release for your account through the same section, you will have to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we have also left the possibility for more experienced users to set both the PHP version and 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 website, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
