Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is used to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of organizations which make paid script applications, so if you acquire such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are part of our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux hosting you select, you can use the instrument so that any kind of script app which requires it will work properly as part of your account. By using a convenient software instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate a variety of settings with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this is your very first website hosting account ever, you won't experience any difficulties. In the very same area you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, therefore any time you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform allows you to take advantage of a couple of PHP releases simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the instrument for a specific website 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 hosting. It is present on our avant-garde cloud platform, so if any script-driven application that you'd like to use requires it to work, you just have to activate it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also switch the PHP version that your web hosting account uses. For every new version which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used releases of PHP, therefore you will not need to do this each and every time. If you have more experience, you'll be able to take full advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set another PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular domain without altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
