Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you need to protect your custom script, for example, you will be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A lot of ready-made script-driven apps, in particular ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to operate efficiently as their core code is usually not free to change. Sites that use the instrument are normally quicker since their code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have set up Zend Optimizer on all the servers which are a part of our innovative cloud website hosting platform and considering that all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you will be able to activate and use Zend for any script app that you would like to use with just a click. You can also select the PHP release which will be active for your account, so if you switch to a new version, you only have to go to the Advanced section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it's as easy as that. In case you change the version back, Zend will already be active. More experienced users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP release and to enable Zend Optimizer only for a separate site by placing a php.ini file with the required code inside the corresponding domain folder.
