Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of organizations which create paid script apps, so in case you acquire 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 protect your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are a part of our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform. No matter which cloud plan you get, you will be able to use the instrument to ensure that any kind of script application that needs it will work properly within your account. Using a handy instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the website hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate various functions with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first hosting account ever, you will not experience any issues. In the very same area you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, thus each time you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. As our platform allows you to work with multiple PHP versions at once, more experienced users can enable the instrument for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we supply and it takes only a couple of clicks to do this. When you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to go to the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you will not have to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP version for your account through the same section, you will need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we've also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP version as well as 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 in general.
