Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files created 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. In case you need to protect your custom-made script, for example, you're able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Numerous ready-made script-driven applications, especially ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to work properly as their core code is usually not free to change. Websites that use the tool are typically faster because their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers which are part of our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. No matter which Linux website hosting you get, you can use the software tool to ensure that any kind of script app which needs it will work perfectly as part of your account. By using a handy instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate a variety of options with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your very first website hosting account ever, you won't have any problems. In the exact same area you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, which means that whenever you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Since our platform allows you to employ multiple PHP versions at once, more experienced users can activate the instrument for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do that. After you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you should head to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, so you will not need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP release for your account through the same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we have also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set 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 specific site, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
