Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of corporations that make paid script apps, so when you acquire such an app for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to change it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our custom-built cloud platform and you can use it whatever the cloud hosting plan that you choose. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the accounts and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do that. Considering that we support several different 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'll need to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used yet. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software tool, and you do not need any kind of coding skills or previous expertise. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app that requires Zend Optimizer without any difficulties, yet if you are unsure how to proceed, you will be able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they can activate the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We provide Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages. It is available on our revolutionary cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven app that you want to use requires it to work, you just have to enable it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you can also change the PHP version which your 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 remembers your selection for previously used versions of PHP, which means that you won't need to do this every time. In case you have more experience, you can benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set another PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific domain without altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
