Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that's required to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you wish to protect your custom script, for example, you will be able to employ Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A lot of ready-made script-driven applications, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to operate correctly since their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Websites that use the instrument are often faster as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all servers which are part of our innovative cloud hosting platform. No matter which shared web hosting you obtain, you will be able to take advantage of the instrument so that any kind of script app that needs it will function perfectly as part of your account. Using a convenient instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the website hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate various settings with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your first web hosting account ever, you will not have any difficulties. In the very same section you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, therefore each time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Since our platform allows you to take advantage of multiple PHP releases simultaneously, more advanced users can enable the tool for a particular 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 our semi-dedicated servers. It is present on our cutting-edge cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven application that you want to use requires it to work, you just have to enable it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also switch the PHP release that your web hosting account uses. For any new version that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used releases of PHP, which means that you won't have to do this each and every time. If you have more experience, you can take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific site without altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
