Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is employed to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous organizations which make paid script apps, so when you purchase such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are a part of our revolutionary cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux cloud web hosting you obtain, you will be able to use the software instrument to ensure that any kind of script application which requires it will work properly in your account. Using a convenient software instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all of the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate various functions with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this is your very first website hosting account ever, you won't experience any problems. In the exact same section you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, which means that whenever you change to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Since our platform allows you to use a couple of PHP versions at once, more experienced users can activate the tool for a particular 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 semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you just a few clicks to do that. When you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to go to the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you do not need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Because you can also change the PHP release for your account from the very same section, you will have to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we've also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP version and 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 website hosting account in general.
