Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application that is used to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of organizations which create paid script applications, so when you buy such an app for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

All of the web hosting accounts that we provide are generated on our cutting-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are part of the clusters. Therefore, you're able to install and execute script-driven apps that require Zend whatever the package that you choose upon registration. The intuitive Hepsia Control Panel which comes with the accounts will make the management of your world wide web presence very simple and activating Zend Optimizer is not an exception since it'll take only a single click to do this. Furthermore, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a specific domain folder and take advantage of Zend just for a specific domain. As you can switch between a number of PHP releases, you'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer for them in exactly the same way and manage both new and older applications from the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You are able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we supply and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do this. Once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to head 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, so you will not need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. As you can also change the PHP release for your account from the same section, you'll have to enable Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we've also left the option for more experienced users to set the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting 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.
