Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous organizations that make paid script applications, so in case you acquire such an app for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

All the cloud web hosting accounts which we provide are generated on our cutting-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is present on all of the servers which are a part of the clusters. Therefore, you're able to set up and execute script-driven apps that need Zend regardless of the plan that you pick upon registration. The intuitive Hepsia Control Panel that is included with the accounts will make the control over your world wide web presence very easy and enabling Zend Optimizer makes no exception since it will take only a single click to do this. Of course, more experienced users can also insert a php.ini file in a given domain folder and use Zend just for a particular domain name. Since you can switch between a number of PHP releases, you'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer for all of them in exactly the same way and manage both new and older apps in the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we offer and it will take you just a few clicks to do that. When you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you should visit the PHP Configuration section where you will find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you won't need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP release for your account through the very same section, you will have to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we have also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP version and 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 hosting account as a whole.
