Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of companies which create paid script apps, so in case you buy such an app for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

All of the hosting accounts that we provide are created on our state-of-the-art cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is present on all the servers that are part of the clusters. Because of this, you are able to install and execute script-driven apps which need Zend irrespective of the plan that you select upon signup. The user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel which comes with the accounts will make the control over your web presence a piece of cake and activating Zend Optimizer makes no exception since it will take a single click to do this. Of course, more experienced users can also insert a php.ini file in a given domain folder and activate Zend only for a particular domain name. Because you can switch between numerous PHP versions, you will be able to enable Zend Optimizer for all of them in the very same way and run both new and older applications within the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you just a few clicks to do that. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you do not need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Because you can also change the PHP release for your account through the very same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we have also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific site, but not for the hosting account as a whole.
