Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is used to encrypt 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 great number of organizations that develop paid script apps, so when you get such an app for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom-built cloud platform and you'll be able to use it whatever the hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the accounts and it will take you just a few clicks to do this. Because we support a number of different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to enable Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you haven't used so far. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click application, and you won't need any kind of programming skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application which needs Zend Optimizer without difficulties, yet when you're unsure what to do, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support team and they'll enable the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We offer Zend Optimizer with all our semi-dedicated service. It's present on our cutting-edge cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application which you'd like to use requires it to work, you just need to enable it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you can also switch the PHP version which your hosting account uses. For each new version which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used releases of PHP, therefore you won't need to do that each and every time. In the event that you have more experience, you are able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set a different PHP version and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific domain name without the need of altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
