Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular app which is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of corporations which develop paid script apps, so if you get 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 also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and make sure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers that are a part of our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. No matter which shared web hosting plan you acquire, you can take advantage of the software instrument to ensure that any script app which needs it will work perfectly within your account. Using a convenient instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate different options with a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your first web hosting account ever, you will not have any problems. In the same area you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, so each time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Because our platform allows you to employ several PHP versions 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 Servers
We provide Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans. It is installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven application that you want to use requires it to work, you just need to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you can also switch the PHP release that your web hosting account uses. For each new release which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used releases of PHP, so you won't have to do that each and every time. In case you have more experience, you're able to take advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file to set a different PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular site without altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
