Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular application which is employed 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 many organizations which make paid script applications, so in case you acquire such an app for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers that are a part of our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform. No matter which Linux hosting plan you pick, you can use the tool to ensure that any script app which needs it will work properly within your account. Using a handy software tool in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate various settings with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first hosting account ever, you won't experience any troubles. In the same area you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, and each time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Since our platform enables you to use a couple of PHP releases at the same time, more advanced users can enable the tool for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We provide Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated servers. It is installed on our innovative cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven app that you'd like to use requires it to function, you just need to enable it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also change the PHP release that your website hosting account uses. For each and every new version 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, which means that you won't need to do that every time. In the event that you have more experience, you can benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set another PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific website without altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
