Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you wish to protect your custom script, for example, you will be able to use Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A number of ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to operate effectively since their core code is generally not free to change. Internet sites that use the tool are normally speedier as their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers which are a part of our modern cloud hosting platform. No matter which Linux shared hosting plan you obtain, you can take advantage of the instrument so that any kind of script application that requires it will operate perfectly as part of your account. Using a handy software tool from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the website hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate a variety of settings with a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your first hosting account ever, you won't encounter any problems. In the same section you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, which means that any time you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Because our platform allows you to take advantage of several PHP releases 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 Servers

We have set up Zend Optimizer on all servers that are part of our revolutionary cloud web hosting platform and considering that all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you can activate and take advantage of Zend for any kind of script app which you'd like to use with just a click. You may also pick the PHP version that will be active for your account, thus if you switch to another version, you only need to go to the Advanced part of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it's as easy as that. In case you switch the version back, Zend will already be active. More tech-savvy users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP release and to enable Zend Optimizer only for a separate site by putting a php.ini file with the required code in the corresponding domain folder.
