Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that is required to run files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you wish to protect your custom script, for instance, you will be able to use 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 site. Many pre-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to operate correctly since their core code is generally not free to change. Websites that use the instrument are usually speedier as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer can be found on our in-house made cloud platform and you will be able to use it whatever the cloud hosting package that you choose. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all accounts and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do that. Due to the fact that 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 activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used yet. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click application, therefore you do not need any computer programming skills or previous experience. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which needs Zend Optimizer with no troubles, still when you're not sure how to proceed, you can get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they'll activate the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We provide Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages. It's available on our cutting-edge cloud platform, so if any script-driven application that you need to use requires it to function, you just need to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also change the PHP version which your hosting account uses. For each and every new version which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used releases of PHP, which means that you won't need to do that each and every time. In the event that you have more experience, you'll be able to benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set a different PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific website without the need of altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
