Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that's required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you wish to protect your custom script, for example, you are 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 site. A lot of ready-made script-driven apps, particularly ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to function correctly since their core code is often not free to modify. Sites which use the instrument are typically speedier because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our in-house built cloud platform and you can use it whatever the cloud hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all accounts and it'll take you only several clicks to do that. Due to the fact that we support several 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 will have to activate 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 activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click application, therefore you will not need any programming skills or previous expertise. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application that needs Zend Optimizer without any troubles, yet if you are unsure how to proceed, you are able to contact our 24/7 tech support team and they can enable the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans. It's available on our avant-garde cloud platform, so if any script-driven application which you need to use requires it to work, you just need to enable it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you can also switch the PHP version which your hosting account uses. For each and every new release that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used versions of PHP, therefore you will not need to do that every time. If you have more experience, you can take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific site without the need of altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
