Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known application that 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 numerous companies which make paid script applications, so if you purchase such an application for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to change it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on our in-house made cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all accounts and it will take you as little as several clicks to do that. Given that we support many different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll need to activate Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you have not used yet. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software tool, so you won't need any computer programming skills or previous practical experience. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without troubles, but if you're not sure what to do, you will be able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they'll enable the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated plans. It's installed on our revolutionary cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application which you need to use requires it to work, you just have to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also switch the PHP release that your web hosting account uses. For each and every new release that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia will remember your choice for previously used releases of PHP, therefore you won't have to do that each and every time. In case you have more experience, you are able to benefit from the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set a different PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular website without the need of altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
