Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of organizations that make paid script apps, so in case you buy such an app for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to change it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers that are part of our advanced cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which website hosting you choose, you can take advantage of the instrument so that any kind of script application that needs it will function flawlessly within your account. By using a handy software tool from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all of the hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate a variety of options with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you will not experience any problems. In the very same area you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, therefore each time you move 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 multiple PHP releases simultaneously, more advanced users can enable the tool for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we offer and it will take you just a few clicks to do this. When you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you don't need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Because you can also change the PHP version for your account through the same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we have also left the option for more experienced 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 just for this specific site, but not for the hosting account as a whole.
