Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that's needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you'd like to protect your custom-written script, for example, you'll be able to employ Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Lots of pre-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to function efficiently as their core code is usually not free to change. Internet sites that use the tool are normally speedier as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers that are a part of our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which cloud web hosting plan you select, you can activate the tool to ensure that any script app that requires it will function properly as part of your account. Using a handy tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate various options with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this is your very first hosting account ever, you won't encounter any issues. In the same section you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, therefore each time you move to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform enables you to use several PHP releases simultaneously, more advanced users can activate the tool for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we offer and it'll take you just a few clicks to do that. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have 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 one of these options, therefore you don't need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP version for your account from the same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we've also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific website, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
