Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by many companies which create paid script apps, so if you obtain such an application for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers which are a part of our modern cloud website hosting platform. No matter which shared web hosting you obtain, you'll be able to activate the instrument so that any script app which requires it will work flawlessly within your account. By using a convenient tool in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate various settings with a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your very first hosting account ever, you will not experience any difficulties. In the very same area you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, thus each time you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform allows you to employ a couple of PHP releases at once, more advanced users can enable the tool for a particular website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated servers. It's present on our revolutionary cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven application that you want to use requires it to function, you just have to activate it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also switch the PHP release that your hosting account uses. For each new version which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used versions of PHP, so you won't have to do that each and every time. In the event that you have more experience, you are able to take full advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file to set another PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular domain without the need of altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
