Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular application which is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by many corporations that make paid script applications, so if you buy such an application for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are part of our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform. No matter which website hosting service you obtain, you'll be able to activate the instrument to ensure that any script app that needs it will function perfectly as part of your account. Using a convenient instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate various functions with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first website hosting account ever, you won't have any troubles. In the very same area you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, so whenever you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Since our platform allows you to take advantage of several PHP releases at the same time, more advanced users can enable the instrument for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We offer Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. It's installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven application which you'd like to use requires it to work, you just have to enable it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also change the PHP version that your hosting account uses. For each new version that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used versions of PHP, which means that you won't need to do that each and every time. In case you have more experience, you can take advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific domain name without the need of altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
