Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of companies which create paid script applications, so in case you get such an application for your website, you'll probably 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 code and make sure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers that are part of our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux web hosting you choose, you can take advantage of the tool to ensure that any kind of script app which needs it will operate flawlessly in your account. By using a convenient software instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate a variety of options with a button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your first web hosting account ever, you will not have any issues. In the exact same area you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, thus each time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. As our platform enables you to work with a couple of PHP releases at once, more advanced users can enable the instrument for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We offer Zend Optimizer with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans. It is installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, so if any script-driven app that you need to use requires it to function, you just have to enable it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also change the PHP release that your hosting account uses. For any new release that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used releases of PHP, so you won't have to do that each time. In the event that you have more experience, you're able to benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set a different PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific website without the need of altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
