Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app that is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by many corporations which make paid script apps, so if you get such an application for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers that are a part of our advanced cloud web hosting platform. No matter which Linux web hosting you acquire, you can use the software tool so that any script application that requires it will work flawlessly in your account. Using a handy software instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate different options with just a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your very first hosting account ever, you will not have any issues. In the same section you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, which means that whenever you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform allows you to take advantage of multiple PHP releases at once, 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 Hosting
We offer Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. It is available on our avant-garde cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven app that you'd like to use requires it to function, you just need to enable it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also switch the PHP version that your web hosting account uses. For each and every new version that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used releases of PHP, so you will not need to do this every time. In the event that you have more experience, you're able to take advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set a different PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific website without altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
