Zend Optimizer is a popular software, which is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you would like to protect your custom script, for example, you'll be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A lot of pre-made script-driven apps, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to operate properly as their core code is usually not free to modify. Internet sites that use the instrument are usually speedier because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers which are a part of our innovative cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux shared web hosting package you choose, you can activate the instrument to ensure that any kind of script application that needs it will function perfectly within your account. By using a convenient instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the website hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate different functions with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your first hosting account ever, you will not have any issues. In the same section you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, and any time you move to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform allows you to take advantage of several PHP versions at the same time, more experienced 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 Hosting

Zend Optimizer is featured on all servers that comprise our cluster web hosting platform, therefore you'll be able to use it for your script-driven apps with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. It'll be available at all times even when you switch the PHP version for your account because our feature-rich platform allows you to choose from 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. Both changing the version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes a few clicks in the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to take care of the semi-dedicated accounts. What's more, you can also employ a different release of PHP and enable or disable Zend for each individual domain that you host from your account. This is possible by using a php.ini file in a domain folder with several lines of program code in it. If you do not have previous experience and you are unsure how to do this, our 24/7 support can assist you.
