Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application that is used to encrypt 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 a lot of organizations which make paid script apps, so in case you obtain such an app for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

When you get a Linux cloud hosting through our company, you're able to pick the PHP release, which will be active for the account based on what your script applications require. You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for any of the releases that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this area, you can employ a compact software tool that will allow you to manage the php.ini file for your account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, which means that you will not need any previous experience because activating Zend Optimizer is as simple as clicking a button. More experienced users will be able to do the same by adding a php.ini file with the needed program code in a specific domain folder. If you need any help to activate the tool, you can contact our technical support crew at any time.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we supply and it will take you only a few clicks to do this. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to go to the PHP Configuration section where you will find various options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you don't have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP version for your account through the same section, you'll have to activate Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we have also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific site, but not for the hosting account as a whole.
