Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that's required to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you need to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you can employ 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 apps, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to operate properly because their core code is usually not free to change. Sites which use the instrument are typically quicker as their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our in-house built cloud platform and you're able to use it whatever the cloud hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all accounts and it'll take you as little as a few clicks to do that. Since we support several 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 need to activate Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you haven't used so far. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click application, and you won't need any kind of programming skills or previous practical experience. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app which needs Zend Optimizer with no troubles, yet when you are not sure what to do, you'll be able to contact our 24/7 tech support team and they'll activate the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you only a few clicks to do this. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to visit the PHP Configuration section where you can find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is among these options, therefore you will not need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP version for your account from the very same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we have also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific site, but not for the hosting account in general.
