Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous corporations that make paid script applications, so when you get such an app for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our in-house built cloud platform and you'll be able to use it regardless of the shared website hosting package that you choose. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the accounts and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do this. Since we support numerous versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2), you will have to enable Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you have not used so far. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click software instrument, and you will not need any coding skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application which needs Zend Optimizer without troubles, but if you are not sure how to proceed, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they will enable the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we supply and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do that. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to go to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find various options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, so you don't have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the same section, you'll have to enable Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we've also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific website, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
