Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's required to run files protected 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 lots of companies which create paid script applications, 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. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to alter it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our in-house built cloud platform and you will be able to use it regardless of the hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all accounts and it'll take you as little as several clicks to do that. Since we support several different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to activate Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you haven't used yet. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click application, therefore you do not need any computer programming skills or previous experience. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, but when you're not sure how to proceed, you are able to contact our 24/7 technical support crew and they can enable the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on all of the servers that comprise our cluster hosting platform, so you will be able to use it for all your script-driven apps with all of our semi-dedicated server packages. It is available at all times even when you change the PHP release for your account since our feature-rich platform allows you to select from 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 couple of clicks in the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel which is used to manage the semi-dedicated accounts. What is more, you may also employ a different version of PHP and activate or deactivate Zend for every single website that you host in the account. You can do this by employing a php.ini file in a domain folder with a few lines of program code inside it. If you do not have previous experience and you aren't sure how to do that, our 24/7 technical assistance will assist.
