Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of companies that make paid script applications, so when you get such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to change it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which shared web hosting plan you choose, you'll be able to use the instrument to guarantee that any kind of script application that needs it will operate properly within your account. By using a handy software instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate different functions with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you won't encounter any difficulties. In the very same area you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, therefore any time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. As our platform allows you to employ a couple of PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the tool for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We provide Zend Optimizer with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans. It is present on our avant-garde cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application which you need to use requires it to function, you just need to activate it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also change the PHP version which your web hosting account uses. For every new version which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used releases of PHP, so you will not have to do this each time. In case you have more experience, you are able to benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular website without altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
