Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that's required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The second encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you need to protect your custom-written script, for example, you are able to use Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Many ready-made script-driven apps, in particular ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to work correctly because their core code is generally not free to modify. Sites which use the tool are typically quicker because their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers which are part of our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which shared website hosting you get, you will be able to use the software instrument to guarantee that any script app that requires it will work properly within your account. Using a convenient instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate many different settings with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you will not have any troubles. In the same area you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, thus each time you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. As our platform allows you to work with multiple PHP versions at once, more advanced users can activate the instrument 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 of our semi-dedicated servers. It is available on our avant-garde cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application which you would like to use requires it to work, you just have to activate it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also switch the PHP release that your hosting account uses. For every new release that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used releases of PHP, which means that you will not need to do this each time. If you have more experience, you'll be able to take advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set another PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular domain without altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
