Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned 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. In case you'd like to protect your custom script, for example, you will be able to use Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Various pre-made script-driven applications, in particular ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to work effectively as their core code is generally not free to modify. Websites that use the instrument are normally speedier because their code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
All shared hosting accounts which we offer are created on our state-of-the-art cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is present on all the servers that are a part of the clusters. Because of this, you can install and execute script-driven applications that need Zend whatever the plan that you select upon registration. The easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with the accounts will make the management of your world wide web presence a piece of cake and enabling Zend Optimizer makes no exception because it will take only a single click to do it. Furthermore, more experienced users can also insert a php.ini file in a specific domain folder and activate Zend only for a specific domain. As you can switch between many different PHP versions, you will be able to enable Zend Optimizer for them in exactly the same way and manage both new and older apps in the same account.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we provide and it takes just a couple of clicks to do that. When you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you should go to the PHP Configuration section where you will find various options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you don't have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the very same section, you will have to activate Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we have also left the possibility 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 only for this particular site, but not for the hosting account in general.
