Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is used 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 large number of corporations which develop paid script applications, so in case you acquire such an application for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers which are part of our revolutionary cloud website hosting platform. No matter which cloud hosting you get, you'll be able to take advantage of the tool so that any kind of script app that needs it will operate properly in your account. Using a handy instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate many different settings with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first web hosting account ever, you won't encounter any troubles. In the exact same section you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, so whenever you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Because our platform allows you to work with several PHP releases at once, more advanced users can enable the tool for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated servers. It is available on our cutting-edge cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven application which you need to use requires it to function, you just have to enable it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you can also change the PHP version which your website hosting account uses. For each new release that 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, so you won't need to do that each and every time. If you have more experience, you are able to benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular website without the need of altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
