Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is used to encode 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 large number of corporations that create paid script apps, so in case you acquire such an application for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers that are a part of our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. No matter which Linux website hosting you pick, you'll be able to activate the instrument so that any kind of script application that requires it will work properly in your account. By using a convenient software tool in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate many different functions with a button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your first web hosting account ever, you won't encounter any difficulties. In the exact same section you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, thus each time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Since our platform allows you to use a couple of PHP releases at once, more advanced users can activate the tool for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans. It is present on our avant-garde cloud platform, so if any script-driven application that you need to use requires it to work, you just have to enable it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also switch the PHP version which your web hosting account uses. For each and every new version which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used versions of PHP, which means that you won't need to do this each and every time. In case you have more experience, you're able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set another PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular site without altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
