Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is used to encode 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 a great number of companies which create paid script applications, so in case you acquire such an app for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our tailor-made cloud platform and you're able to use it regardless of the cloud hosting package that you choose. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the accounts and it'll take you as little as several clicks to do this. Given that 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 need to activate Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you haven't used yet. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click tool, therefore you will not need any kind of computer programming skills or previous practical experience. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer without any difficulties, yet if you're not sure what to do, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they will enable the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do that. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to visit the PHP Configuration section where you can find many different options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you do not have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we have also left the possibility for more experienced users to set both the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific website, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
