Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application which is used to encrypt 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 large number of organizations which create paid script apps, so when you buy such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on our tailor-made cloud platform and you can use it whatever the hosting plan that you select. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the accounts and it will take you only a few clicks to do that. Because we support numerous versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to enable Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you have not used so far. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click software tool, and you won't need any coding skills or previous expertise. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application that needs Zend Optimizer without difficulties, but if you're unsure what to do, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support team and they can activate the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated servers. It's available on our cutting-edge cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven application which you would like to use requires it to function, you just need to enable it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also change the PHP release which your website hosting account uses. For every new release which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used releases of PHP, so you will not need to do that every time. If you have more experience, you're able to take advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set another PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific website without the need of altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
