Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular application which is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of corporations that make paid script apps, so when you acquire such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and make sure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are part of our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform. No matter which shared website hosting plan you acquire, you can activate the tool to ensure that any kind of script app which requires it will function perfectly in your account. Using a handy software instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate a variety of settings with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you will not have any issues. In the same section you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, which means that any time you move to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. As our platform allows you to take advantage of several PHP releases at once, more experienced users can activate the instrument for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we supply and it'll take you just a few clicks to do that. After you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to visit the PHP Configuration section where you will find various options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is one of these options, so you do not have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the same section, you will have to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we have also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific website, but not for the web hosting account in general.
