Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The second encodes files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you want to protect your custom-made script, for example, you're able to employ Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Numerous pre-made script-driven apps, in particular ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to function properly since their core code is usually not free to change. Internet sites that use the instrument are usually quicker since their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on our custom-built cloud platform and you can use it whatever the hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the accounts and it will take you as little as several clicks to do this. Because we support numerous versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2), you will have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you haven't used yet. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click software tool, so you don't need any coding skills or previous expertise. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which needs Zend Optimizer with no troubles, yet in case you are not sure what to do, you will be able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they can activate the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we supply and it will take you just a few clicks to do this. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to visit the PHP Configuration section where you can find many different options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, so you don't need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you'll need to enable Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we've also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP version as well as 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 particular website, but not for the hosting account as a whole.
