Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is used to encrypt 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 plenty of companies that develop paid script apps, so if you get such an application for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to change it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are a part of our revolutionary cloud website hosting platform. No matter which Linux web hosting you pick, you'll be able to activate the software tool to ensure that any script app which requires it will operate properly within your account. Using a convenient instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate many different options with a button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you won't experience any troubles. In the very same section you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, therefore each time you move to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform enables you to take advantage of a couple of PHP versions at once, 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

You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we supply and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do that. After you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to head to the PHP Configuration section where you can find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is among these options, so you will not need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP release for your account through the same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we have also left the option for more experienced users to set both the PHP release and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific website, but not for the hosting account in general.
