Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular app that is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of organizations that make paid script applications, so in case you acquire such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed faster.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers that are a part of our advanced cloud web hosting platform. No matter which Linux shared hosting package you choose, you can use the software tool to guarantee that any kind of script application that needs it will function flawlessly within your account. By using a handy tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the website hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate many different functions with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first web hosting account ever, you will not encounter any difficulties. In the exact same area you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, therefore whenever you move to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform enables you to take advantage of multiple PHP releases simultaneously, more advanced users can activate the tool for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated packages. It is installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven app that you wish 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 area where you may also change the PHP version that your hosting account uses. For every new release which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia will remember your choice for previously used versions of PHP, therefore you will not need to do that each time. In the event that you have more experience, you're able to benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set another PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific site without altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
