Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is employed to encrypt 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 lots of companies that develop paid script applications, so if you acquire such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are a part of our advanced cloud web hosting platform. No matter which cloud hosting you pick, you can activate the tool to guarantee that any script application which requires it will operate properly in your account. Using a convenient software tool from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate different functions with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your first hosting account ever, you won't experience any difficulties. In the exact same area you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, which means that each time you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. As our platform allows you to take advantage of 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 Hosting
You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we supply and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do that. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to go to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find many different options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you will not have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP release for your account through the same section, you'll need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we have also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular site, but not for the web hosting account in general.
