Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of corporations that create paid script applications, so in case you get such an application for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to change it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers that are part of our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which cloud website hosting you acquire, you will be able to take advantage of the software tool to ensure that any kind of script app that requires it will operate flawlessly as part of your account. By using a handy instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate a variety of settings with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you won't experience any troubles. In the same area you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, and whenever you move 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 use multiple PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can activate the instrument for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we offer and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do this. Once you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to go to the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you do not have to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the same section, you will need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we have also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular site, but not for the website hosting account in general.
