Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is employed 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 great number of companies that develop paid script applications, so in case you buy such an app for your site, you'll most likely 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 secure your code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are a part of our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. No matter which web hosting you choose, you will be able to activate the tool so that any script application that needs it will work perfectly in your account. Using a handy software tool from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate different 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 won't experience any problems. In the very same area you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, which means that each time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Because our platform allows you to work with a couple of PHP versions at the same time, more experienced users can enable the tool for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we supply and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do this. After you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to head to the PHP Configuration section where you will find various options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is among these options, so you will not have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you will have to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we have also left the option for more experienced users to set the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific site, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
