Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you would like to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you are able to use Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A large number of ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to function properly since their core code is often not free to change. Internet sites that use the tool are normally faster because their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on our custom-built cloud platform and you'll be able to use it whatever the cloud website hosting package that you select. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all accounts and it'll take you as little as several clicks to do this. Because we support several 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 need to enable Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used so far. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click instrument, therefore you do not need any kind of computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer without difficulties, still in case you're unsure how to proceed, you are able to contact our 24/7 tech support team and they'll activate the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you just a few clicks to do this. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to go to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find many different options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you do not have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the same section, you will have to enable Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we have also left the option for more experienced users to set the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular website, but not for the website hosting account in general.
