Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you want to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you can use Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A number of ready-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to operate correctly since their core code is usually not free to modify. Websites which use the instrument are generally quicker because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Hosting
All hosting accounts that we provide are created on our advanced cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers which are a part of the clusters. Therefore, you'll be able to install and execute script-driven applications which need Zend regardless of the package that you pick upon signup. The user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with the accounts will make the control over your online presence a piece of cake and activating Zend Optimizer is not an exception as it'll take a single click to do it. Furthermore, more experienced users can also put a php.ini file in a given domain folder and take advantage of Zend only for a specific domain name. As you can switch between many different PHP releases, you will be able to enable Zend Optimizer for any of them in exactly the same way and manage both new and older apps within the same account.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we supply and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do that. Once you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to go to the PHP Configuration section where you will find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you do not have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Because you can also change the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you'll need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we have also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP release as well as 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 website, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
