Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that's required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The second encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you need to protect your custom script, for instance, you're able to use Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A lot of pre-made script-driven apps, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to work efficiently since their core code is usually not free to change. Internet sites which use the tool are typically faster as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our in-house made cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the shared hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the accounts and it'll take you as little as a couple of clicks to do that. Because we support several different releases 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 each time you change the version to one you haven't used so far. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click instrument, therefore you will not need any kind of computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer without any difficulties, still when you're unsure what to do, you're able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they'll enable the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We have installed Zend Optimizer on all the servers that are part of our top-notch cloud web hosting platform and due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you will be able to activate and take advantage of Zend for any kind of script app which you wish to use with just a single click. You can also choose the PHP version which will be active for your account, so if you move to some other version, you only need to go to the Advanced section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it is as easy as that. If you change the version back, Zend will already be active. More tech-savvy users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP version and to enable Zend Optimizer only for a single website by putting a php.ini file with the required code in the corresponding domain folder.
