Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of corporations which create paid script applications, so in case you buy such an application for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers that are a part of our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform. No matter which Linux cloud package you choose, you can take advantage of the tool to ensure that any script app which requires it will work properly as part of your account. By using a convenient tool from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate different options with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first web hosting account ever, you will not encounter any issues. In the exact same area you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, thus any time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform allows you to use several PHP releases at once, more experienced users can enable the instrument for a particular site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do that. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should head to the PHP Configuration section where you can find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is one of these options, so you will not have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. As you can also change the PHP release for your account from the very same section, you will have to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we have also left the option for more experienced users to set both the PHP release and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular website, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
