Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of companies that make paid script apps, so in case you get such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

All the cloud hosting accounts that we offer are created on our advanced cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all of the servers which are part of the clusters. For that reason, you're able to install and execute script-driven apps that require Zend whatever the package that you pick upon signup. The user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with the accounts will make the control over your world wide web presence a breeze and activating Zend Optimizer makes no exception since it'll take only a single click to do it. Of course, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and activate Zend just for a specific domain. As you can switch between a number of different PHP versions, you'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer for all of them in the very same way and manage both new and older applications within the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Zend Optimizer is featured on all the servers that comprise our cluster website hosting platform, which means that you'll be able to use it for your script-driven apps with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. It will be available all the time 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 the version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes a couple of clicks in the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to control the semi-dedicated accounts. What's more, you can even use a different release of PHP and enable or disable Zend for each individual site that you host in the account. You can do this by using a php.ini file in a domain folder with just a couple of lines of program code in it. If you do not have previous experience and you are not sure how to do that, our 24/7 technical assistance can help you.
