Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that is required to run files protected with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you'd like to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you're able to take advantage of 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. A number of ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to work correctly because their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Internet sites which use the instrument are usually faster as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer can be found on our custom cloud platform and you'll be able to use it whatever the shared web hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all accounts and it will take you as little as several clicks to do that. Due to the fact that we support numerous releases 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 each time you change the version to one you haven't used yet. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click tool, therefore you don't need any kind of programming skills or previous practical experience. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application that needs Zend Optimizer without any troubles, but when you are unsure what to do, you'll be able to contact our 24/7 tech support team and they'll activate the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we supply and it takes only a couple of clicks to do that. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to go to the PHP Configuration section where you can find various options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you won't have to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. As you can also change the PHP version for your account from the same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we have also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both 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 just for this specific site, but not for the hosting account in general.
