Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread app that 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 numerous corporations which create paid script apps, so in case you buy such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all servers which are part of our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform. No matter which Linux cloud hosting you choose, you'll be able to take advantage of the tool so that any script application that requires it will function perfectly as part of your account. Using a convenient software instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate many different functions with a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this is your very first web hosting account ever, you won't have any difficulties. In the exact same section you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, and each time you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Because our platform allows you to work with a couple of PHP versions at once, more advanced users can enable the instrument for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We offer Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. It's installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, so if any script-driven application which you want to use requires it to function, you just need to activate it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you can also switch the PHP release which your hosting account uses. For every new release that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used versions of PHP, which means that you won't need to do this each time. If you have more experience, you'll be able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular website without altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
