Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you'd like to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you're able to use Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Numerous ready-made script-driven applications, especially ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to work effectively since their core code is usually not free to change. Websites that use the instrument are typically faster because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are part of our advanced cloud website hosting platform. No matter which Linux web hosting package you obtain, you will be able to take advantage of the software tool to ensure that any kind of script application which needs it will function perfectly within your account. By using a handy instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate a variety of settings with a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your first web hosting account ever, you won't encounter any issues. In the exact same area you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, therefore any time you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform allows you to work with several PHP versions at the same time, 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

We offer Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages. It's available on our revolutionary cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application that you'd like to use requires it to work, you just need to enable it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also change the PHP version that your hosting account uses. For each and every new version which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used releases of PHP, therefore you will not have to do this every time. In case you have more experience, you'll be able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set a different PHP version and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular domain without the need of altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
