Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you'd like to protect your custom script, for example, you will be able to employ Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A number of pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to function properly since their core code is generally not free to modify. Sites that use the instrument are generally quicker because their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are part of our modern cloud website hosting platform. No matter which Linux hosting you select, you will be able to take advantage of the instrument to guarantee that any script app which requires it will function properly as part of your account. Using a handy software instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate different settings with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first website hosting account ever, you won't experience any issues. In the exact same section you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, and each time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform enables you to use several PHP versions at the same time, more advanced users can enable the instrument for a particular site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We've installed Zend Optimizer on all servers which are a part of our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and since all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you can enable and take advantage of Zend for any script app that you wish to use with just a single click. In addition, you can choose the PHP version that will be active for your account, therefore if you switch to some other version, you only have to go to the Advanced section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it is as simple as that. In case you change the version back, Zend will already be active. More experienced users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP version and to enable Zend Optimizer only for a single website by placing a php.ini file with the needed program code inside the corresponding domain folder.
