Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by many companies which make paid script applications, so if you obtain such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to change it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting
All the cloud web hosting accounts which we offer are generated on our advanced cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all of the servers that are a part of the clusters. For that reason, you'll be able to install and run script-driven apps which require Zend whatever the package that you pick upon signup. The easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel which is featured with the accounts shall make the management of your web presence a breeze and activating Zend Optimizer makes no exception as it'll take a single click to do this. In addition, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a specific domain folder and activate Zend only for a specific domain name. Because you can switch between a number of PHP versions, you can enable Zend Optimizer for any of them in the very same way and manage both new and older apps in the same account.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do this. Once you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find many different options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, so you will not have to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the same section, you will have to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we've also left the option for more experienced users to set the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific website, but not for the web hosting account in general.
