Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is employed 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 numerous companies which develop paid script apps, so in case you acquire such an app for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is accessible on our tailor-made cloud platform and you'll be able to use it whatever the website hosting plan that you choose. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the accounts and it will take you as little as a couple of clicks to do that. Due to the fact that we support a number of different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you haven't used yet. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click tool, and you will not need any coding skills or previous experience. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app that needs Zend Optimizer without any troubles, still when you are unsure what you should do, you're able to contact our 24/7 technical support crew and they'll enable the instrument for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We've set up Zend Optimizer on all the servers that are part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform and since all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you can enable and employ Zend for any kind of script app which you would like to use with just a click. You may also pick the PHP release which will be active for your account, therefore if you switch to another version, you only have to go to the Advanced section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it's as easy as that. In case you change the version back, Zend will already be active. More tech-savvy users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP release and to enable Zend Optimizer only for a separate site by placing a php.ini file with the needed program code in the corresponding domain folder.
