Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is employed to encrypt 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 a great number of organizations which make paid script apps, so when you obtain such an app for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to change it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom-made cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the shared hosting plan that you select. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all accounts and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do this. Since we support numerous releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to activate Zend Optimizer every 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 disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click application, so you will not need any computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer without difficulties, still when you're not sure how to proceed, you're able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support team and they will activate the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We offer Zend Optimizer with all our semi-dedicated servers. It is available on our innovative cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application that you'd like to use requires it to work, you just need to activate it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also change the PHP release which your web hosting account uses. For every new release which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia will remember your choice for previously used releases of PHP, which means that you won't have to do that every time. In the event that you have more experience, you are able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file to set another PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific website without the need of altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
