Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you want to protect your custom-written script, for example, you'll be able to use Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A number of ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to function effectively since their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Internet sites that use the tool are generally quicker as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we offer and it will take you just a few clicks to do that. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find various options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is among these options, therefore you don't need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. As you can also change the PHP release 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 experienced users to set both the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific website, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
