Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created 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. In case you wish to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you'll be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Lots of pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to operate properly as their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Internet sites that use the tool are often faster since their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is accessible on our in-house built cloud platform and you're able to use it regardless of the shared website hosting package that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the accounts and it will take you only a few clicks to do that. Since we support numerous 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 need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you haven't used so far. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click instrument, therefore you will not need any computer programming skills or previous practical experience. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app that needs Zend Optimizer without any difficulties, still in case you're unsure how to proceed, you will be able to contact our 24/7 tech support team and they can activate the tool for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We provide Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages. 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 have to enable it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also switch the PHP release that your web hosting account uses. For any new version that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used versions of PHP, therefore you won't have to do that every time. In case you have more experience, you're able to benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set a different PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
