Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that's required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you need to protect your custom script, for instance, you can use Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. A lot of ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to work efficiently since their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Internet sites that use the tool are normally speedier since their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

All the shared website hosting accounts that we provide are created on our state-of-the-art cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are a part of the clusters. Therefore, you'll be able to set up and run script-driven apps that need Zend irrespective of the plan that you pick upon signup. The user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel that is featured with the accounts shall make the control over your web presence a piece of cake and enabling Zend Optimizer makes no exception due to the fact that it'll take a single click to do it. Of course, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and take advantage of Zend only for a particular domain name. Because you can switch between a number of different PHP releases, you can activate Zend Optimizer for them in exactly the same way and run both new and older applications from the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we offer and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do this. After you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to go to the PHP Configuration section where you can find many different options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, so you do not need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the same section, you will need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we've also left the option for more experienced users to set the PHP version 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 only for this particular website, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
