Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular app 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 plenty of companies which create paid script applications, so if you buy such an application for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting accounts which we offer are created on our cutting-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers which are part of the clusters. Therefore, you'll be able to install and run script-driven applications that require Zend whatever the package that you choose upon registration. The user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with the accounts will make the management of your world wide web presence very simple and enabling Zend Optimizer makes no exception because it will take a single click to do it. In addition, more experienced users can also put a php.ini file in a given domain folder and take advantage of Zend just for a particular domain name. Because you can switch between a variety of PHP versions, you can enable Zend Optimizer for all of them in exactly the same way and run both new and older apps from the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. It is available on our avant-garde cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application which you wish to use requires it to function, you just have to activate it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You shall 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 will be all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used versions of PHP, therefore you will not have to do this every time. In case you have more experience, you can take full advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set another PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific website without altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
