Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is used to encrypt 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 plenty of corporations that make paid script apps, so if you obtain such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to change it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom-made cloud platform and you'll be able to use it whatever the cloud hosting package that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the accounts and it will take you just a few clicks to do that. Due to the fact that we support many 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 will need to enable Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you have not used yet. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software tool, therefore you do not need any computer programming skills or previous experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which needs Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, yet if you're not sure how to proceed, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support team and they'll activate the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we offer and it'll take you only a few clicks to do that. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should head to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find various options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, so you won't need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. As you can also change the PHP release for your account from the same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we have also left the option for more experienced users to set both the PHP release 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 only for this specific website, but not for the web hosting account in general.
