Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app which is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of organizations that develop paid script applications, so when you obtain such an application for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our in-house made cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the cloud website hosting package that you choose. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the accounts and it will take you as little as several clicks to do this. Considering that we support many different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to activate Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you have not used so far. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click tool, and you don't need any programming skills or previous practical experience. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application that requires Zend Optimizer without troubles, still when you're unsure what you should do, you're able to contact our 24/7 tech support team and they can enable the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated hosting. It's present on our cutting-edge cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application which you need to use requires it to work, you just need to activate it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also change the PHP release which your website hosting account uses. For each new release that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used releases of PHP, so you won't have to do this each time. In case you have more experience, you can take full advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set another PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular domain without the need of altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
