Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of corporations which create paid script applications, so in case you buy such an application for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to change it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our custom cloud platform and you will be able to use it whatever the cloud website hosting plan that you select. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all accounts and it will take you as little as a couple of clicks to do this. Because we support a number of different versions 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 have not used so far. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software instrument, so you don't need any programming skills or previous expertise. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application that requires Zend Optimizer with no troubles, yet if you're unsure what you should do, you are able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they will enable the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We offer Zend Optimizer with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans. It's installed on our revolutionary cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven app which you'd like to use requires it to function, you just have to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also change the PHP release that your hosting account uses. For every new release which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used versions of PHP, so you will not have to do that every time. In case you have more experience, you'll be 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 specific domain without the need of altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
