Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of organizations that make paid script apps, so if you buy such an application for your site, you will 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 shield your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to change it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
Zend Optimizer is available on our tailor-made cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the shared hosting
package that you select. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the accounts and it'll take you just several clicks to do this. Because we support several different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you have not used yet. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software tool, and you will not need any programming skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app that needs Zend Optimizer without difficulties, still when you are not sure what to do, you'll be able to contact our 24/7 technical support team and they will activate the tool for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have set up Zend Optimizer on all the servers which are part of our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform and due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server
accounts are created on it, you'll be able to enable and employ Zend for any kind of script app that you wish to use with just a click. You may also select the PHP version that will be active for your account, so if you move to some other version, you just need to go to the Advanced part of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it is as simple as that. In case you switch the version back, Zend will already be active. More experienced users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP version and to activate Zend Optimizer only for a separate site by putting a php.ini file with the required program code inside the corresponding domain folder.
