Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is employed to encode 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 great number of companies that make paid script apps, so in case you buy such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting
When you buy a shared web hosting through our company, you are able to select the PHP version, that will be active for the account based on what your script apps need. You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel for all of the releases that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this area, you will be able to employ a small tool which will allow you to handle the php.ini file for the account and enable or disable PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, which means that you will not need any kind of previous knowledge since enabling Zend Optimizer will be as easy as clicking a button. More experienced users will be able to do the same thing by placing a php.ini file with the required code in a specific domain folder. If you need any help to activate the instrument, you can contact our tech support team anytime.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated hosting. It is installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven application that you'd like to use requires it to function, you just need to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also change the PHP release which your hosting account uses. For every new version that you set, just 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 and every time. In case you have more experience, you are able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set another PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular website without altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
