Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, which is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you need to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you can take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Lots of ready-made script-driven applications, especially ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to operate efficiently as their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Internet sites that use the instrument are generally faster because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our in-house made cloud platform and you will be able to use it regardless of the cloud website hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the accounts and it will take you as little as a couple of clicks to do that. Since we support a number of different 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'll have to enable Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you haven't used yet. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click application, therefore you won't need any programming skills or previous experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app that requires Zend Optimizer without troubles, but in case you are unsure what you should do, you can contact our 24/7 tech support team and they will enable the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

Zend Optimizer is featured on all the servers that comprise our cluster website hosting platform, so you are able to use it for your script-driven apps with all of our semi-dedicated server packages. It will be available all the time even when you switch the PHP release for your account since our feature-rich platform allows you to choose from 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. Both changing your version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes a few clicks in the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to take care of the semi-dedicated accounts. What's more, you may even employ a different release of PHP and enable or disable Zend for every single site that you host from your account. You can do this by employing a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of program code inside it. In case you don't have previous experience and you aren't sure how to do that, our 24/7 technical support can assist you.
