Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is needed to run 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 many organizations which develop paid script applications, so when you obtain such an application for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will be unable to change it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
Zend Optimizer is available on our tailor-made cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the shared hosting plan that you select. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all accounts and it'll take you only several clicks to do that. Due to the fact that we support several different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to activate Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you haven't used so far. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click instrument, therefore you don't need any coding skills or previous experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which needs Zend Optimizer without difficulties, still if you're not sure what to do, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support team and they can activate the instrument for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We provide Zend Optimizer with all our semi-dedicated hosting. It is available on our avant-garde cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven app which you'd like to use requires it to function, you just have to enable it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also change the PHP release which your website hosting account uses. For each and every new release which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used versions of PHP, which means that you will not need to do this each and every time. In the event that you have more experience, you are able to benefit from the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set another PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific site without the need of altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
