Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular app which is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of corporations that make paid script apps, so in case you obtain such an app for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will be unable to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers that are part of our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which cloud website hosting service you choose, you will be able to activate the instrument so that any kind of script application that requires it will function properly within your account. By using a convenient instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the website hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate different functions with just a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your very first website hosting account ever, you will not experience any issues. In the exact same area you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, thus whenever you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform allows you to use a couple of PHP versions at once, more advanced users can enable the instrument for a particular site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we offer and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do that. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to go to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find various options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you do not need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the same section, you will have to enable Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we've also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP release and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific website, but not for the website hosting account in general.
