Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that's required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you need to protect your custom script, for instance, you are able to use Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Many ready-made script-driven applications, especially ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to operate correctly because their core code is often not free to modify. Internet sites which use the tool are normally faster because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. No matter which cloud web hosting you get, you will be able to use the software tool to guarantee that any kind of script application which needs it will work flawlessly as part of your account. By using a handy instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate different options with just a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you won't encounter any difficulties. In the very same area you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, which means that each time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Since our platform enables you to employ a couple of PHP releases at once, more advanced users can enable the instrument for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do that. When you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to go to the PHP Configuration section where you will find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, so you will not need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we have also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP release and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular site, but not for the web hosting account in general.
