Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of corporations which create paid script applications, so when you obtain such an app for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will 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 be unable to change it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers that are a part of our revolutionary cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux hosting package you pick, you'll be able to take advantage of the tool to ensure that any script app that requires it will work flawlessly in your account. By using a convenient instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate a variety of options with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first hosting account ever, you won't experience any problems. In the same area you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, so any time you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. As our platform allows you to employ a couple of PHP versions at once, more advanced users can enable the instrument for a particular website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we offer and it takes only a couple of clicks to do that. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should go to the PHP Configuration section where you will find various options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is one of these options, so you do not have to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Because you can also change the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you will need to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we've also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific site, but not for the website hosting account in general.
