Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, 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 code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of organizations that make paid script applications, so when you buy such an app for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

When you purchase a cloud hosting plan from us, you can pick the PHP version, which will be active for the account according to what your script apps need. You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for all of the versions that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this area, you are able to use a compact tool that will allow you to control the php.ini file for the account and enable or disable PHP extensions through On and Off buttons, so you won't need any previous experience considering that activating Zend Optimizer will be as easy as clicking a button. More advanced users can do the same by adding a php.ini file with the necessary code in a specific domain folder. In case you need any assistance to activate the tool, you can contact our technical support team at any time.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we offer and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do that. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to go to the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for each one 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 release for your account from the same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we have also left the possibility for more experienced users to set both the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular website, but not for the hosting account in general.
