Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app that is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of organizations which make paid script applications, so if you purchase such an application for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all servers which are a part of our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux shared hosting you select, you will be able to use the software instrument to guarantee that any kind of script app that requires it will work perfectly within your account. By using a handy tool from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate many different settings with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you will not have any difficulties. In the same section you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous 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. Since our platform enables you to work with a couple of PHP releases at once, more advanced users can activate the instrument for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we offer and it'll take you just a few clicks to do this. When you log 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 all of them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you will not have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the very same section, you'll have to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we've also left the possibility for more knowledgeable 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 only for this particular site, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
