Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is employed to encrypt 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 plenty of companies that make paid script applications, so if you get such an app 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 may also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the shared web hosting
plan that you choose. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all accounts and it will take you as little as a few clicks to do that. Due to the fact that we support many different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to activate Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you have not used so far. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click application, and you don't need any kind of programming skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application that needs Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, yet if you're not sure how to proceed, you'll be able to contact our 24/7 technical support crew and they will activate the tool for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have installed Zend Optimizer on all servers which are part of our hi-tech cloud web hosting platform and due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server
accounts are created on it, you can enable and take advantage of Zend for any kind of script application that you want to use with just a single click. In addition, you can select the PHP release which will be active for your account, thus if you switch to some other release, you only need to go to the Advanced part of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it's as easy as that. If you change the version back, Zend will already be active. More experienced users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP release and to activate Zend Optimizer just for a separate website by placing a php.ini file with the needed program code in the corresponding domain folder.
