Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is employed to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of corporations that make paid script applications, so if you get such an application for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

If you purchase a shared plan through us, you're able to select the PHP version, that will be active for the account depending on what your script apps need. You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel for any of the versions that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this section, you are able to employ a compact software tool that will allow you to control the php.ini file for your account and enable or disable PHP extensions using On and Off buttons, which means that you will not need any previous knowledge considering that activating Zend Optimizer is as easy as clicking a button. More experienced users can do the same thing by adding a php.ini file with the needed program code in a specific domain folder.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you only a few clicks to do that. When you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you should visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find many different options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is among these options, which means that you will not have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP release for your account through the very same section, you'll have to enable Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we have also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP release and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular site, but not for the web hosting account in general.
