Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that's needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encodes files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you need to protect your custom-written script, for example, you will be able to use Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A lot of ready-made script-driven apps, in particular ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to operate properly because their core code is usually not free to modify. Sites which use the tool are generally faster because their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our tailor-made cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the shared hosting package that you choose. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all of the accounts and it'll take you as little as a few clicks to do this. Because 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'll need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you haven't used so far. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click application, so you won't need any computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app which needs Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, still in case you're unsure how to proceed, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they can enable the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You are able to enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we supply and it takes only a few clicks to do that. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find various options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is one of these options, so you don't have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the very same section, you'll have to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we have also left the option for more experienced 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 particular site, but not for the website hosting account in general.
