Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is used to encode 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 a lot of companies which develop paid script apps, so in case you get such an app for your site, 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 can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are part of our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux hosting package you get, you will be able to use the instrument to ensure that any kind of script application that needs it will work properly within your account. By using a convenient instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the web hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate a variety of functions with just a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first hosting account ever, you will not encounter any troubles. In the exact same area you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, which means that each time you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform enables you to work with multiple PHP versions at the same time, more advanced users can activate the tool for an individual 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 available on our innovative cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven app that you'd like to use requires it to function, 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 may also switch the PHP release that your website hosting account uses. For every new version that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are 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 the event that you have more experience, you can benefit from the versatility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific website without altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
