Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is 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 code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of organizations which make paid script apps, so if you obtain such an app for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our in-house made cloud platform and you're able to use it regardless of the website hosting package that you choose. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all accounts and it'll take you just several clicks to do that. Due to the fact that we support numerous releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll need to enable Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you haven't used so far. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software instrument, therefore you will not need any coding skills or previous practical experience. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which needs Zend Optimizer without any difficulties, but in case you're not sure what to do, you're able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they'll activate the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated plans. It's available on our avant-garde cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven app that you need to use requires it to function, you just have to activate it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also switch the PHP version which your web hosting account uses. For any new version that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used versions of PHP, which means that you won't have to do this each time. In the event that you have more experience, you can take advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set a different PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular domain name without altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
