Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is needed to execute files encoded 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 number of companies that create paid script applications, so if you obtain such an application for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

All the cloud hosting accounts which we provide are created on our cutting-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is present on all servers that are part of the clusters. Because of this, you'll be able to set up and execute script-driven apps which require Zend whatever the plan that you pick upon registration. The easy to navigate Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with the accounts will make the management of your world wide web presence a piece of cake and activating Zend Optimizer makes no exception as it will take a single click to do it. Of course, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and enable Zend only for a particular domain name. Because you can switch between a variety of PHP versions, you can activate Zend Optimizer for them in exactly the same way and run both new and older applications within the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We offer Zend Optimizer with all our semi-dedicated hosting service. It's present on our cutting-edge cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven app which you want to use requires it to function, you just have to activate it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also switch the PHP release which your website hosting account uses. For any new release which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia remembers your choice 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 are able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set another PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific domain without altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
