Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, which is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you need to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you will be able to employ 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. A large number of pre-made script-driven applications, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to operate properly because their core code is generally not free to change. Websites that use the tool are often speedier as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

All cloud web hosting accounts that we offer are created on our advanced cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers that are a part of the clusters. For that reason, you are able to install and run script-driven apps which require Zend regardless of the plan that you choose upon signup. The easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel which comes with the accounts will make the management of your world wide web presence a piece of cake and activating Zend Optimizer makes no exception because it will take just a single click to do it. Furthermore, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a given domain folder and activate Zend just for a particular domain name. Because you can switch between a variety of PHP versions, you can enable Zend Optimizer for them in exactly the same way and manage both new and older apps within the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do this. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find various options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is among these options, so you do 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'll have to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we've also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific website, but not for the hosting account as a whole.
