Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts 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. If you would like to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you'll be able to use Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Countless ready-made script-driven applications, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to function effectively since their core code is generally not free to modify. Sites which use the tool are usually quicker since their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers which are part of our advanced cloud website hosting platform. No matter which cloud web hosting plan you get, you'll be able to take advantage of the software tool to guarantee that any kind of script application which requires it will work properly as part of your account. Using a handy software tool in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all of the web hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate many different options with a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your first hosting account ever, you will not encounter any issues. In the exact same section you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, and each time you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform allows you to use a couple of PHP versions simultaneously, more advanced users can activate the instrument for an individual 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 plans. 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 function, 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 change the PHP release that your hosting account uses. For any new release that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used releases of PHP, which means that you will not have to do that every time. In case you have more experience, you are able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file to set a different PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular domain without altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
