Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is used to encode 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 organizations that make paid script applications, so when you purchase such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to change it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers which are a part of our revolutionary cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux cloud hosting package you pick, you'll be able to use the software tool so that any kind of script application which requires it will operate perfectly in your account. Using a convenient software tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate various options with a button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your first website hosting account ever, you will not encounter any issues. In the same section you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, and each time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform allows you to employ a couple of PHP releases at once, more experienced users can enable the instrument for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we offer and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do that. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should go to the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you do not have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. As you can also change the PHP release for your account from the very same section, you will have to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we have also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP release and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific site, but not for the hosting account as a whole.
