Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known application 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 a number of corporations which make paid script applications, so if you buy such an application for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available 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 make sure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

When you purchase a shared hosting from our company, you'll be able to pick the PHP version, that will be active for the account depending on what your script apps need. You can activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for any of the releases that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this section, you can take advantage of a compact software tool which will allow you to handle the php.ini file for your account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions through On and Off buttons, which means that you won't need any kind of previous knowledge considering that enabling Zend Optimizer is as easy as clicking a button. More advanced users will be able to do the same by placing a php.ini file with the needed program code in a specific domain folder. In case you need any assistance to activate the instrument, you're able to contact our tech support team anytime.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we supply and it'll take you just a few clicks to do that. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to head to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find various options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is among these options, so you do not need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the very same section, you will have to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we have also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP version 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 specific website, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
