Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of organizations which make paid script apps, so when you get such an app for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on our in-house built cloud platform and you will be able to use it whatever the hosting package that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the accounts and it'll take you as little as a couple of clicks to do that. Considering that we support several 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 change the version to one you have not used yet. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software instrument, so you will not need any computer programming skills or previous experience. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application that needs Zend Optimizer with no troubles, yet when you're not sure how to proceed, you're able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they'll activate the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated servers. It is present on our avant-garde cloud platform, so if any script-driven app which you'd like to use requires it to work, you just need to enable it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also switch the PHP version that your website hosting account uses. For any new release which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used releases of PHP, which means that you will not need to do that each time. In the event that you have more experience, you can take advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific domain name without the need of altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
