Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application 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 numerous organizations that create paid script applications, so when you purchase such an app for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are a part of our revolutionary cloud hosting platform. No matter which hosting plan you pick, you can take advantage of the software instrument to ensure that any script application which requires it will function perfectly within your account. By using a convenient software instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate a variety of settings with a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first website hosting account ever, you will not encounter any difficulties. In the same section you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, so whenever you move to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform allows you to use multiple PHP releases at the same time, more experienced users can activate the tool for a particular site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans. It's installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, so if any script-driven app that you need to use requires it to work, you just have to enable it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also switch the PHP release that your hosting account uses. For each and every new release that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia will remember your choice for previously used versions of PHP, so you won't need to do this each and every time. In case you have more experience, you're able to benefit from 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 website without the need of altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
