Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, which is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you want to protect your custom script, for example, you're able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Many ready-made script-driven applications, particularly ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to operate efficiently since their core code is generally not free to modify. Sites that use the tool are normally faster as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer can be found on our tailor-made cloud platform and you're able to use it whatever the shared website hosting package that you select. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all of the accounts and it will take you as little as a couple of clicks to do that. Given that we support a number of different 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 enable Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you have not used yet. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click instrument, therefore you do not need any computer programming skills or previous experience. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application that requires Zend Optimizer without troubles, but in case you're unsure what you should do, you are able to contact our 24/7 technical support team and they will enable the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We have set up Zend Optimizer on all of the servers which are a part of our top-notch cloud hosting platform and considering that all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you can enable and use Zend for any kind of script app which you would like to use with just a single click. You may also select the PHP release that will be active for your account, so if you move to a different version, you only have to go to the Advanced part of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it is as easy as that. If you switch the version back, Zend will already be active. More experienced users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP release and to enable Zend Optimizer only for a single website by putting a php.ini file with the needed code in the corresponding domain folder.
