Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of corporations that develop paid script apps, so when you acquire such an application for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer is present on our tailor-made cloud platform and you will be able to use it whatever the cloud hosting plan that you choose. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the accounts and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do that. Because we support many 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 enable Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you have not used yet. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click tool, so you will not need any kind of coding skills or previous practical experience. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app that requires Zend Optimizer without any troubles, but in case you're not sure what you should do, you can get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they will enable the instrument for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do this. When you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to visit the PHP Configuration section where you can find many different options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is among these options, so you will not need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we've also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP release 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 particular website, but not for the hosting account as a whole.
