Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is employed to encode 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 a lot of companies which make paid script applications, so if you purchase such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to change it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom-built cloud platform and you will be able to use it regardless of the web hosting plan that you select. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the accounts and it will take you only several clicks to do that. Given that we support a number of different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll need to activate Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you haven't used so far. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click tool, therefore you do not need any kind of programming skills or previous experience. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without any troubles, but when you're unsure how to proceed, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they can activate the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

Zend Optimizer is featured on all servers that comprise our cluster hosting platform, which means that you will be able to use it for your script-driven applications with all of our semi-dedicated server plans. It'll be available all of the time even when you change the PHP version for your account since our feature-rich platform allows you to choose between 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 couple of clicks in the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to manage the semi-dedicated accounts. What's more, you can even employ a different version of PHP and enable or disable Zend for each individual domain that you host from your account. You can do this by using a php.ini file in a domain folder with a few lines of code inside it.
