Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application that 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 plenty of organizations which create paid script applications, so when you buy such an application for your website, you'll probably 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 shield your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily 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 Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers which are part of our advanced cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux website hosting package you get, you will be able to use the tool to guarantee that any kind of script app which requires it will operate perfectly in your account. Using a convenient instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the web hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate different functions with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first website hosting account ever, you won't encounter any problems. In the very same area you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, so any time you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Because our platform allows you to use multiple PHP versions at the same time, more experienced users can enable the instrument for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We provide Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages. It's installed on our innovative cloud platform, therefore 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 section where you can also change the PHP version 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'll be all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used releases of PHP, so you will not need to do this every time. In the event that you have more experience, you'll be able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set a different PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular site without altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
