Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is required to run files protected with Zend Guard. The second encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you'd like to protect your custom-made script, for example, you will be able to employ Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Lots of pre-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to function effectively since their core code is generally not free to modify. Websites which use the tool are typically quicker as their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our in-house made cloud platform and you will be able to use it regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all accounts and it will take you just a few clicks to do that. Given that 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 will have to enable Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you have not used so far. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click tool, therefore you do not need any kind of coding skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without any troubles, but when you're not sure how to proceed, you're able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support team and they'll enable the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We offer Zend Optimizer with all our semi-dedicated servers. It's present on our innovative cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application which you would like to use requires it to work, you just need to enable it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also change the PHP version which your website hosting account uses. For each new release that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used versions of PHP, so you will not have to do this each time. In the event that you have more experience, you'll be able to benefit from the versatility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file to set another PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular domain name without the need of altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
