Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular app which is used 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 numerous organizations that make paid script apps, so when you acquire such an application for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all servers which are part of our innovative cloud web hosting platform. No matter which shared plan you pick, you can use the software instrument so that any script app which requires it will function properly in your account. By using a handy software instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the web hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate different options with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first website hosting account ever, you will not have any problems. In the very same area you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, so any time you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. As our platform allows you to use multiple PHP releases at the same time, 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 Servers

We offer Zend Optimizer with all our semi-dedicated plans. It is available on our innovative cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven app which you want to use requires it to function, you just have to enable it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also change the PHP version which your website hosting account uses. For each and every new version that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used versions of PHP, so you will not need to do that every time. If you have more experience, you'll be able to take advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set another PHP version and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific domain name without the need of altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
