Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that's needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The second encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you need to protect your custom-written script, for example, you will be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A large number of ready-made script-driven apps, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to function efficiently as their core code is often not free to modify. Websites which use the instrument are often speedier as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Hosting
Zend Optimizer is accessible on our in-house made cloud platform and you will be able to use it regardless of the hosting plan that you select. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all accounts and it'll take you only several clicks to do that. Given that we support a number of 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 have to enable Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you have not used so far. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click instrument, and you won't need any programming skills or previous experience. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without any difficulties, but if you're not sure what you should do, you will be able to contact our 24/7 technical support crew and they will activate the tool for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we offer and it takes only a few clicks to do that. Once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to visit the PHP Configuration section where you can find various options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is among these options, so you won't have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP version for your account from the very same section, you will need to activate Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we've also left the possibility for more knowledgeable 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 just for this specific site, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
