Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread app which 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 lot of companies that make paid script applications, so in case you purchase 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 are 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 alter it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer can be found on our custom-built cloud platform and you'll be able to use it whatever the shared web hosting package that you select. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the accounts and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do that. Due to the fact that we support many 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 will need to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you haven't used yet. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click tool, so you will not need any programming skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer with no troubles, still if you are not sure how to proceed, you're able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they will activate the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated servers. It's installed on our revolutionary cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application which you'd like to use requires it to work, you just have to activate it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also change the PHP version that your hosting account uses. For each and every new version which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used releases of PHP, therefore you will not need to do that each and every time.
