Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of companies that develop paid script apps, so in case you obtain such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to change it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our tailor-made cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the shared hosting package that you choose. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all accounts and it'll take you only a few clicks to do this. Given that we support a number of different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to activate Zend Optimizer every time you change 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 disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click software tool, so you will not need any kind of programming skills or previous expertise. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, but in case you're not sure what to do, you are able to contact our 24/7 tech support team and they'll enable the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

Zend Optimizer is installed on all of the servers that comprise our cluster web hosting platform, which means that you can use it for all of your script-driven applications with all of our semi-dedicated server plans. It is available at all times even if you switch the PHP release for your account as our feature-rich platform allows you to select from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Both changing your version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes a few clicks in the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the semi-dedicated accounts. What is more, you can also use a different version of PHP and enable or disable Zend for every single website that you host in the account. You can do this by employing a php.ini file in a domain folder with just a couple of lines of program code inside it. If you don't have previous experience and you aren't sure how to do that, our 24/7 tech support can help you.
