Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you need to protect your custom script, for example, you can take advantage of 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 pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to function properly since their core code is often not free to change. Websites which use the tool are typically faster since their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our tailor-made cloud platform and you're able to use it regardless of the cloud website hosting package that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all accounts and it'll take you as little as a few clicks to do this. Since 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'll have to enable Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you haven't used so far. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click instrument, so you will not need any computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app that needs Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, yet in case you're not sure what to do, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support team and they'll activate the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We have set up Zend Optimizer on all the servers which are a part of our top-notch cloud web hosting platform and due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you'll be able to activate and take advantage of Zend for any script application that you would like to use with no more than a single click. You can also choose the PHP release that will be active for your account, so if you switch to another 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 is 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 version and to enable Zend Optimizer just for a separate site by putting a php.ini file with the needed program code inside the corresponding domain folder.
