Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, which is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you need to protect your custom-written script, for example, you can 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 website. Countless ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to work correctly as their core code is often not free to change. Sites that use the tool are often quicker as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are a part of our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux shared hosting package you obtain, you can activate the tool to ensure that any script app which requires it will operate properly as part of your account. By using a handy software instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate many different functions with a button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you won't encounter any problems. In the same area you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, which means that whenever you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Because our platform enables you to work with multiple PHP releases at the same time, more experienced users can activate the instrument for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we provide and it takes only a couple of clicks to do this. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to go to the PHP Configuration section where you can find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, therefore you don't have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP release for your account through the same section, you will need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we have also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP release and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific site, but not for the hosting account in general.
