Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous companies that make paid script applications, so in case you purchase such an app for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is present on our in-house made cloud platform and you're able to use it regardless of the cloud website hosting package that you select. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the accounts and it'll take you just several clicks to do this. Because we support several different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to enable Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you have not used yet. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click application, so you do not need any kind of programming skills or previous experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application that needs Zend Optimizer without difficulties, still when you're not sure what to do, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they will activate the instrument for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We provide Zend Optimizer with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans. It is installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven app that you want 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 can also change the PHP version that your web hosting account uses. For each and every new release which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used releases of PHP, therefore you won't need to do that each and every time. In the event that you have more experience, you'll be 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 domain name without altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
