Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app which is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of companies which develop paid script apps, so when you acquire 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're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom-built cloud platform and you'll be able to use it regardless of the website hosting package that you select. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the accounts and it will take you as little as a few clicks to do that. Given that we support numerous 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 need to enable Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you have not used yet. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click tool, therefore you will not need any kind of programming skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without any troubles, still when you're not sure what you should do, you will be able to contact our 24/7 technical support crew and they will enable the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we offer and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do this. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to head to the PHP Configuration section where you can find many different options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you don't have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you'll need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we've also left the option for more experienced users to set both the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific website, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
