Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of companies that make paid script apps, so if you get such an app for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your code and ensure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to change it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers which are part of our modern cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which hosting plan you choose, you will be able to activate the software tool to guarantee that any kind of script application which requires it will operate perfectly as part of your account. Using a handy instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate various settings with a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your first hosting account ever, you will not have any problems. In the same section you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, therefore whenever you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform allows you to take advantage of several PHP versions at the same time, more advanced users can enable the instrument for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans. It is present on our avant-garde cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven application which you want to use requires it to function, you just need to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also switch the PHP version that your web hosting account uses. For every new release that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used releases of PHP, so you won't need to do this each time. In case you have more experience, you're able to take full advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific domain without the need of altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
