Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of corporations which make paid script applications, so if you get such an application for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to change it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer can be found on our tailor-made cloud platform and you can use it whatever the cloud hosting plan that you select. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the accounts and it'll take you only several clicks to do this. Due to the fact that we support a number of different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you have not used so far. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click application, and you will not need any computer programming skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application which needs Zend Optimizer without any difficulties, but in case you're not sure what to do, you're able to contact our 24/7 technical support team and they will enable the tool for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We have set up Zend Optimizer on all of the servers which are a part of our innovative cloud website hosting platform and due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you will be able to activate and employ Zend for any script app which you want to use with no more than a click. You can also choose the PHP version which will be active for your account, therefore if you move to some other release, you just have to go to the Advanced section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it's as easy as that. If you change the version back, Zend will already be active. More tech-savvy users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP version and to activate Zend Optimizer just for a single website by putting a php.ini file with the needed code inside the corresponding domain folder.
