Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is used to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous corporations that make paid script apps, so when you obtain such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our in-house built cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the shared hosting package that you select. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the accounts and it'll take you just a few clicks to do this. Given that 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 will have to activate Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you have not used yet. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click application, therefore you will not need any kind of computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer without any difficulties, but in case you are unsure how to proceed, you are able to contact our 24/7 technical support crew and they can enable the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We offer Zend Optimizer with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans. It's available on our avant-garde cloud platform, so if any script-driven application which you would like to use requires it to work, you just need to enable it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also change the PHP version which your website hosting account uses. For each and every new version which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used versions of PHP, so you won't have to do that every time. In case you have more experience, you're able to take advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file to set another PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular domain name without the need of altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
