Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is employed 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 many organizations which make paid script apps, so when you buy such an app for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the accounts and it'll take you as little as a couple of clicks to do that. Due to the fact that we support a number of different versions 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'll need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you have not used so far. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click software tool, and you won't need any kind of computer programming skills or previous practical experience. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application that needs Zend Optimizer without difficulties, but in case you're not sure what to do, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support team and they can enable the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we offer and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do that. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to go to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is among these options, therefore you will not need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the very same section, you will have to enable Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we have also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular site, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
