Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you want to protect your custom script, for example, you are able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Various pre-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to function properly as their core code is often not free to change. Internet sites which use the instrument are generally faster as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are a part of our advanced cloud hosting platform. No matter which website hosting you obtain, you will be able to activate the tool to ensure that any script application which requires it will work flawlessly within your account. By using a convenient software instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate different functions with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your first website hosting account ever, you will not experience any problems. In the exact same area you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, so any time you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform enables you to use multiple PHP versions at the same time, more experienced users can activate the tool for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated servers. It's present on our innovative cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application which you want to use requires it to function, you just need to enable it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel.

For each and every new version which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used versions of PHP, which means that you won't have to do this every time. In case you have more experience, you are able to benefit from the versatility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file to set another PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific site without the need of altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
