Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application which is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of organizations which create paid script apps, so when you get such an application for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed faster.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are a part of our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux shared website hosting package you select, you'll be able to take advantage of the tool to ensure that any script application which requires it will operate flawlessly as part of your account. Using a convenient software tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all of the hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate various settings with a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your very first website hosting account ever, you will not have any troubles. In the very same section you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, and whenever you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Since our platform enables you to use multiple PHP versions at once, more experienced users can activate the instrument for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we supply and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do that. After you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to go to the PHP Configuration section where you will find various options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you will not have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP release for your account through the very same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we've 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 particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific site, but not for the hosting account as a whole.
