Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as 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-made script, for instance, you are able to employ Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Countless pre-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to function properly because their core code is often not free to modify. Sites which use the instrument are often speedier as their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom cloud platform and you can use it whatever the cloud hosting package that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all accounts and it will take you just several clicks to do this. Given that we support a number of 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 each time you change the version to one you have not used so far. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click tool, so you won't need any programming skills or previous practical experience. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which needs Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, yet if you're not sure what to do, you will be able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they will activate the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We've installed Zend Optimizer on all of the servers that are a part of our hi-tech cloud web hosting platform and considering that all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you can activate and employ Zend for any script application which you need to use with no more than a click. In addition, you can pick the PHP release that will be active for your account, thus if you switch to some other release, you only need to go to the Advanced section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it's as easy 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 activate Zend Optimizer just for a separate website by placing a php.ini file with the required program code in the corresponding domain folder.
