Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is used to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of organizations that create paid script applications, so when you obtain such an app for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are a part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which cloud hosting you get, you will be able to use the software tool to ensure that any kind of script application that requires it will function perfectly in your account. By using a handy instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate many different functions with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first web hosting account ever, you won't experience any troubles. In the same area you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, and any time you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform enables you to employ multiple PHP versions at the same time, more experienced users can enable the tool for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do that. When you log in to the 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 of them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you don't need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP release for your account through the same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we have also left the possibility for more experienced users to set both the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular website, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
