Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is used to encode 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 numerous companies which create paid script applications, so when you purchase such an application for your website, 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 protect your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers which are a part of our advanced cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which cloud hosting you select, you'll be able to use the tool to ensure that any kind of script application which requires it will operate perfectly within your account. By using a handy software instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate many different functions with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this is your very first hosting account ever, you will not experience any issues. In the very same section you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, thus each time you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform enables you to employ a couple of PHP releases at once, more experienced users can enable the tool for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated servers. It's available on our avant-garde cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven app which you'd like to use requires it to function, you just need to enable it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you can also switch the PHP version which your website hosting account uses. For every new release which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used releases of PHP, which means that you won't have to do that every time. In case you have more experience, you're able to take advantage of 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 domain without altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
