Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous companies that develop paid script apps, so when you get such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers that are a part of our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. No matter which Linux cloud web hosting package you choose, you'll be able to use the software instrument to ensure that any kind of script app that requires it will operate perfectly in your account. By using a convenient instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the web hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate a variety of options with a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first web hosting account ever, you will not encounter any issues. In the very same section you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, and whenever you change to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Since our platform enables you to use a couple of PHP versions at the same time, more experienced users can enable the tool for a particular site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we provide and it takes just a couple of clicks to do that. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to head to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find many different options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you will not have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we have also left the option for more experienced users to set the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific website, but not for the hosting account in general.
