Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is used to encode 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 many companies which develop paid script applications, so if you obtain such an application for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

When you buy a cloud hosting through our company, you can choose the PHP version, that will be active for the account depending on what your script apps need. You can activate Zend Optimizer with just 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. When you go to this area, you'll be able to take advantage of a small software tool that will allow you to handle the php.ini file for the account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions using On and Off buttons, so you will not need any previous experience since activating Zend Optimizer will be as easy as clicking a button. More advanced users will be able to do the same thing by placing a php.ini file with the required code in a particular domain folder. In case you need any help to activate the tool, you will be able to contact our technical support crew at any time.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide and it takes only a couple of clicks to do this. When you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find various options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you will not need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP release for your account through the same section, you'll have to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we have also left the possibility for more experienced users to set both the PHP version 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 in general.
