Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of organizations which create paid script applications, so in case you obtain such an app for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

All hosting accounts which we provide are set up on our advanced cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers which are part of the clusters. Consequently, you can install and execute script-driven apps which require Zend whatever the package that you select upon signup. The user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel which is included with the accounts will make the control over your world wide web presence a piece of cake and activating Zend Optimizer is not an exception as it'll take only a single click to do this. Furthermore, more experienced users can also insert a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and activate Zend just for a particular domain. Because you can switch between a number of different PHP versions, you can enable Zend Optimizer for all of them in the very same way and run both new and older applications from the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you only a few clicks to do that. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should visit the PHP Configuration section where you can find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you won't need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP release for your account through the same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we have also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific site, but not for the hosting account as a whole.
