Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application 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 a lot of corporations which develop paid script applications, so when you purchase such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to change it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers that are part of our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which shared web hosting you acquire, you'll be able to activate the software tool to ensure that any kind of script application which requires it will operate perfectly in your account. By using a handy software instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the website hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate a variety of settings with a button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you will not have any issues. In the exact same section you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, thus each time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Because our platform allows you to take advantage of several PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the tool for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we supply and it will take you only a few clicks to do that. After you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to visit the PHP Configuration section where you can find various options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is among these options, therefore you don't have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we've also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific website, but not for the web hosting account in general.
