Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is used 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 lots of organizations that make paid script applications, so in case you get such an application for your site, you'll probably 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 make sure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom cloud platform and you can use it whatever the cloud hosting plan that you select. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all accounts and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do this. Considering that we support several different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you have not used yet. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software tool, and you will not need any coding skills or previous experience. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer without any troubles, still when you're not sure how to proceed, you are able to contact our 24/7 tech support crew and they'll 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, therefore 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 the Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also switch the PHP release which your web hosting account uses. For every new version which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used releases of PHP, so you will not need to do that each and every time. In case you have more experience, you're able to take advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file to set another PHP version and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific site without the need of altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
