Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you would like to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you can employ Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A number of pre-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to work correctly as their core code is often not free to modify. Internet sites that use the tool are often faster because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

All the cloud hosting accounts which we offer are set up on our leading-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are a part of the clusters. As a result, you are able to install and run script-driven apps that require Zend irrespective of the plan that you pick upon registration. The intuitive Hepsia Control Panel that is included with the accounts will make the control over your online presence a breeze and enabling Zend Optimizer makes no exception because it'll take just a single click to do it. In addition, more experienced users can also insert a php.ini file in a specific domain folder and activate Zend only for a particular domain. As you can switch between many different PHP releases, you will be able to enable Zend Optimizer for them in exactly the same way and run both new and older applications from the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we supply and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do this. Once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you should head to the PHP Configuration section where you can find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you do not need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP version for your account from the very same section, you'll have to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we've also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular site, but not for the hosting account as a whole.
