Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular app which is employed 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 many corporations which make paid script apps, so when you buy such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to change it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers that are a part of our modern cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which cloud hosting you acquire, you can take advantage of the instrument so that any kind of script application that needs it will function perfectly in your account. Using a convenient software 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 many different options with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first hosting account ever, you won't experience any issues. In the exact same area you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, thus any time you move to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform allows you to work with several PHP releases at the same time, more experienced users can activate the tool for a particular site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you just a few clicks to do that. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to go to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find various options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, so you won't have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. As you can also change the PHP release for your account through the very same section, you will need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we've also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular site, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
