Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of corporations that make paid script applications, so when you get such an application for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you choose. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the accounts and it'll take you only a few clicks to do this. Because 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 change the version to one you have not used so far. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click instrument, therefore you do not need any kind of programming skills or previous expertise. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without troubles, yet in case you're not sure how to proceed, you will be able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support team and they can activate the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we supply and it'll take you just a few clicks to do that. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you will not need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP version for your account from the very same section, you will have to activate Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we've also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific website, but not for the hosting account in general.
