Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is needed to execute files encoded 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 code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of companies which make paid script applications, so if you get such an app for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to change it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom-built cloud platform and you can use it whatever the shared web hosting
plan that you select. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the accounts and it'll take you just a few clicks to do this. Given that we support many different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you haven't used so far. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click software tool, therefore you don't need any coding skills or previous practical experience. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application that requires Zend Optimizer without any troubles, yet in case you're not sure what you should do, you'll be able to contact our 24/7 technical support crew and they'll activate the instrument for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
. It's present on our avant-garde cloud platform, so if any script-driven application which you wish to use requires it to function, you just have to activate it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also switch the PHP release which your web hosting account uses. For each and every new version which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used releases of PHP, so you will not need to do that every time. In the event that you have more experience, you can take advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file to set another PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular domain without altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
