Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of organizations that make paid script applications, so if you get such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.
Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers that are a part of our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which website hosting service you get, you can use the instrument to guarantee that any kind of script app which needs it will operate properly within your account. By using a convenient tool in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the website hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate different settings with a button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your first website hosting account ever, you will not encounter any problems. In the same section you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, which means that each time you move to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform allows you to take advantage of multiple PHP versions at once, more experienced users can activate the tool for an individual 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 every single semi-dedicated server that we offer and it will take you just a few clicks to do this. After you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you should head to the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is among these options, so you do not have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP release for your account through the very same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we've also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular website, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
