Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of organizations which create paid script apps, so when you get such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

All of the cloud hosting accounts which we offer are set up on our cutting-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is present on all of the servers that are part of the clusters. Because of this, you're able to set up and run script-driven applications that require Zend regardless of the plan that you pick upon registration. The easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel which is included with the accounts will make the management of your web presence very easy and enabling Zend Optimizer makes no exception since it will take just a single click to do it. Of course, more experienced users can also put a php.ini file in a given domain folder and take advantage of Zend just for a specific domain. Since you can switch between numerous PHP versions, you will be able to activate Zend Optimizer for any of them in the very same way and manage both new and older apps within the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do that. After you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to go to the PHP Configuration section where you will find various options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, so you will not have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we've also left the possibility 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 particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular site, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
