Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known application that 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 number of corporations which develop paid script applications, so when you purchase such an application for your website, you'll 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 protect your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers that are a part of our modern cloud website hosting platform. No matter which hosting you select, you'll be able to take advantage of the software instrument so that any kind of script application that requires it will work perfectly within your account. Using a convenient tool in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate many different functions with a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this is your very first web hosting account ever, you won't experience any problems. In the exact same area you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, which means that any time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform enables you to employ multiple PHP releases simultaneously, more experienced users can activate the instrument for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
Zend Optimizer is featured on all servers that comprise our cluster website hosting platform, so you'll be able to use it for all of your script-driven applications with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. It will be available all of the time even when you switch the PHP release for your account since our feature-rich platform allows you to choose between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Both changing the version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes a few clicks in the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel that is used to control the semi-dedicated accounts. In addition, you can even use a different release of PHP and enable or disable Zend for every single site that you host in your account. This is possible by using a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of program code inside it. If you do not have previous experience and you are unsure how to do that, our 24/7 tech support will assist.
