Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is used 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 lot of companies which create paid script applications, so in case you obtain such an app for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are a part of our innovative cloud website hosting platform. No matter which cloud hosting package
you pick, you can take advantage of the instrument so that any kind of script application which requires it will operate properly as part of your account. By using a handy software instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate many different settings with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this is your very first web hosting account ever, you won't encounter any issues. In the same area you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, thus each time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Because our platform enables you to take advantage of a couple of PHP versions at the same time, more experienced users can activate the instrument for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Zend Optimizer is featured on all servers that comprise our cluster hosting platform, which means that you'll be able to use it for your script-driven apps with any of our semi-dedicated server
packages. It is available all of the time even if you change the PHP version for your account because our feature-rich platform will allow 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 just a few clicks in the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel which is used to manage the semi-dedicated accounts. What is more, you may even employ a different version of PHP and activate or deactivate Zend for every single site that you host from your account. You can do this by employing a php.ini file in a domain folder with just a couple of 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 tech support will assist.
