Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app which is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of organizations which create paid script applications, so when you buy such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

All the website hosting accounts which we offer are set up on our advanced cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are part of the clusters. Because of this, you're able to set up and execute script-driven apps that need Zend whatever the plan that you pick upon signup. The easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel that is featured with the accounts will make the control over your web presence a piece of cake and enabling Zend Optimizer makes no exception because it'll take only a single click to do it. In addition, more experienced users can also put a php.ini file in a given domain folder and use Zend just for a particular domain. As you can switch between a number of PHP versions, you'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer for any of them in exactly the same way and manage both new and older applications from the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we supply and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do that. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to head to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find many different options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, so you do not have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP version for your account from the same section, you will have to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we've also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular site, but not for the hosting account in general.
