Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of corporations that create paid script applications, so in case you obtain such an application for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is available on our tailor-made cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the website hosting package that you select. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the accounts and it'll take you just several clicks to do that. Due to the fact that we support numerous 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 each time you switch the version to one you haven't used yet. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click instrument, so you don'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 with no difficulties, still when you are not sure what to do, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they will activate the instrument for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We've installed Zend Optimizer on all of the servers which are part of our revolutionary cloud hosting platform and due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you'll be able to activate and employ Zend for any script app which you would like to use with just a single click. In addition, you can select the PHP version which will be active for your account, thus if you switch to a different release, you only need to go to the Advanced part of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it's as easy as that. If you switch the version back, Zend will already be active. More tech-savvy users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP version and to enable Zend Optimizer only for a separate website by putting a php.ini file with the needed program code inside the corresponding domain folder.
