Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is employed 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 lots of organizations that develop paid script apps, so in case you get such an application for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers which are a part of our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. No matter which Linux web hosting you select, you can use the software tool to ensure that any kind of script app that requires it will operate perfectly as part of your account. Using a convenient software instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate many different options with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your first web hosting account ever, you will not encounter any problems. In the exact same section you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, therefore whenever you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. As our platform allows you to employ multiple PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the instrument for a particular site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we supply and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do this. After you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you should visit the PHP Configuration section where you can find many different options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you do not need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP version for your account from the very same section, you will have to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we have also left the option for more experienced users to set the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific site, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
