Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is employed to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of companies that develop paid script applications, so if you get such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to change it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

When you acquire a shared hosting plan from our company, you will be able to select the PHP version, which will be active for the account according to what your script apps require. You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for all of the versions that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this area, you're able to use a small tool that will allow you to manage the php.ini file for the account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, which means that you won't need any kind of previous experience since activating Zend Optimizer is as simple as clicking a button. More advanced users can do the same thing by adding a php.ini file with the required code in a particular domain folder. In case you need any assistance to activate the instrument, you're able to contact our technical support crew at any time.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do this. After you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you should visit the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is one of these options, so you won't have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we've also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP release and 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 website hosting account as a whole.
