Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application that is used to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of organizations that create paid script apps, so if you purchase such an app for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to change it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are part of our innovative cloud website hosting platform. No matter which Linux shared web hosting package you choose, you'll be able to take advantage of the tool to ensure that any kind of script app which requires it will operate flawlessly as part of your account. By using a handy software instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the website hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate different options with just a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first hosting account ever, you will not have any problems. In the exact same area you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, so any time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Because our platform allows you to use multiple PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the tool for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we supply and it takes only a couple of clicks to do that. When you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find various options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, so you won't need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP version for your account from the very same section, you will have to enable Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we've also left the possibility 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 only for this specific site, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
