Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of corporations which create paid script apps, so in case you purchase such an app for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available 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 site visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer often perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

All of the cloud web hosting accounts which we provide are created on our leading-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is present on all the servers which are a part of the clusters. Consequently, you'll be able to set up and run script-driven applications which require Zend irrespective of the plan that you pick upon signup. The intuitive Hepsia Control Panel that comes with the accounts will make the management of your web presence a piece of cake and enabling Zend Optimizer makes no exception as it will take only a single click to do this. In addition, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and use Zend only for a specific domain name. Because you can switch between a number of PHP versions, you will be able to activate Zend Optimizer for all of them in exactly the same way and run both new and older apps in the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we supply and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do that. Once you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you don't need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP release for your account from the very same section, you will have to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we have also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP version 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 just for this specific website, but not for the web hosting account in general.
