Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts 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 copyrighted source code. When you would like to protect your custom-made script, for example, you're able to use Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Various ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to function effectively because their core code is often not free to modify. Internet sites which use the tool are normally faster as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers which are a part of our innovative cloud hosting platform. No matter which Linux cloud hosting you choose, you can take advantage of the software tool so that any script application that requires it will operate perfectly within your account. By using a convenient software tool from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the website hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate various options with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you won't have any issues. In the exact same area you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, which means that each time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Since our platform allows you to employ multiple PHP versions at once, more advanced users can enable the tool for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We provide Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. It is present on our avant-garde cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven app that you want to use requires it to function, you just have to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also switch the PHP release that your web hosting account uses. For every new release which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used releases of PHP, therefore you will not have to do this every time. In case you have more experience, you can take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file to set a different PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular domain name without the need of altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
