Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, which is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you want to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you can take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Countless pre-made script-driven apps, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to function correctly since their core code is often not free to modify. Websites which use the tool are normally faster because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers which are part of our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform. No matter which shared hosting service you choose, you'll be able to activate the software instrument to ensure that any kind of script application that requires it will work properly as part of your account. By using a handy software tool from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate various functions with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your first web hosting account ever, you won't encounter any problems. In the same area you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, so whenever you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Since our platform allows you to use several PHP releases at the same time, more experienced users can enable the tool for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

Zend Optimizer is featured on all servers that comprise our cluster website hosting platform, which means that you are able to use it for all of your script-driven applications with any of our semi-dedicated server plans.

Both changing the version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes just a couple of clicks in the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to control the semi-dedicated accounts. Furthermore, you may even employ a different version of PHP and activate or deactivate Zend for every single website that you host from your account. This is possible by using a php.ini file in a domain folder with just a couple of lines of program code inside it.
