Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app which is employed to encrypt 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 organizations that make paid script apps, so in case you get such an app for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

When you get a Linux cloud website hosting service from our company, you can choose the PHP version, that will be active for your account depending on what your script applications require. You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for any of the versions that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this section, you can take advantage of a small tool which will allow you to control the php.ini file for the account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions using On and Off buttons, so you will not need any previous experience as enabling Zend Optimizer will be as simple as clicking a button. More advanced users will be able to do the same thing by adding a php.ini file with the necessary code in a specific domain folder. If you need any assistance to activate the tool, you're able to contact our technical support team anytime.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated servers. It is available on our cutting-edge cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application that you need to use requires it to work, you just have to activate it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also change the PHP version which your website hosting account uses. For each and every new version which 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, which means that you will not have to do this each and every time. In case you have more experience, you'll be able to take advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set another PHP version and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific domain without altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
