Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular app which is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of organizations that create paid script apps, so when you get such an application for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to alter it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on our in-house built cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the cloud website hosting plan that you choose. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the accounts and it'll take you as little as a couple of clicks to do that. Because we support many different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to enable Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you haven't used so far. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software instrument, therefore you won't need any programming skills or previous practical experience. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without any difficulties, but in case you are not sure what to do, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they can enable the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We offer Zend Optimizer with all our semi-dedicated servers. It is available on our cutting-edge cloud platform, so if any script-driven application that you need to use requires it to function, you just need to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you can also change the PHP version which your web hosting account uses. For every new release which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used releases of PHP, therefore you won't need to do that each time. If you have more experience, you are able to take advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file to set a different PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular site without altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
