Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular app that is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of organizations which develop paid script applications, so in case you purchase such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

All of the web hosting accounts which we offer are generated on our leading-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are a part of the clusters. For that reason, you're able to set up and run script-driven applications that require Zend whatever the package that you pick upon signup. The easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel that is included with the accounts will make the control over your world wide web presence a breeze and enabling Zend Optimizer is not an exception since it will take a single click to do it. Of course, more experienced users can also put a php.ini file in a specific domain folder and activate Zend only for a specific domain name. Since you can switch between many different PHP releases, you'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer for any of them in the very same way and run both new and older applications from the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We offer Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages. It is available on our avant-garde cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven app that you'd like to use requires it to work, you just have to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you can also change the PHP version that your hosting account uses. For any new version that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used versions of PHP, so you won't need to do that each and every time. In case you have more experience, you can take advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file to set a different PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular website without altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
