Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular app that is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of companies which make paid script apps, so if you purchase such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer is available on our custom-built cloud platform and you'll be able to use it regardless of the web hosting plan that you select. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the accounts and it will take you only several clicks to do that. Because we support a number of different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to enable 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 operated with a point-and-click application, therefore you do not need any kind of programming skills or previous practical experience. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app which needs Zend Optimizer without difficulties, yet in case you are unsure what you should do, you are able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they'll activate the instrument for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We provide Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated service. It's available on our avant-garde cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven app which you'd like to use requires it to work, you just need to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also switch the PHP version that your website hosting account uses. For each new version which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used versions of PHP, so you will not have to do this each time. In the event that you have more experience, you can benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set another PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific domain without the need of altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
