Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known application which 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 a large number of corporations that develop paid script applications, so if you acquire such an app for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield 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 ordinarily perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers that are part of our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform. No matter which Linux web hosting package you pick, you can take advantage of the software instrument so that any kind of script app which requires it will work properly as part of your account. Using a handy tool from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate various settings with a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you won't encounter any issues. In the exact same area you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, and any time you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Because our platform enables you to employ multiple PHP versions at once, more experienced users can activate the instrument for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We provide Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages. It is installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, so if any script-driven app that you wish to use requires it to work, you just have to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you can also change the PHP version that your hosting account uses. For each new version which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used versions of PHP, therefore you won't have to do this every time. In case you have more experience, you are able to take advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular domain name without the need of altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
