Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular application which is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of companies that develop paid script apps, so if you acquire such an application for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to change it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are part of our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux cloud hosting package
you choose, you'll be able to take advantage of the software tool so that any kind of script app which needs it will operate perfectly as part of your account. Using a convenient software instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the website hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate many different options with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you won't experience any difficulties. In the very same area you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, thus whenever you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Since our platform allows you to take advantage of several PHP releases at once, more advanced users can activate the tool for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server
that we provide and it takes only a couple of clicks to do this. Once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to head to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find various options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you won't have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Because you can also change the PHP release for your account from the same section, you'll need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we've also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific website, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
