Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of organizations that make paid script apps, so in case you obtain such an application for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are part of our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux shared web hosting service you acquire, you can take advantage of the instrument to ensure that any kind of script app which requires it will work properly in your account. By using a convenient instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate various functions with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your first website hosting account ever, you will not encounter any issues. In the very same section you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, so each time you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. As our platform allows you to employ several PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can activate the instrument for an individual site 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 services. It's available on our avant-garde cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven app that you wish to use requires it to work, you just need to enable it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also switch the PHP version that your website hosting account uses. For each and every new release that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used versions of PHP, so you will not need to do this each time. If you have more experience, you are 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 enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular domain name without altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
