Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of corporations which develop paid script apps, so in case you get such an app for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are a part of our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. No matter which hosting plan you pick, you will be able to take advantage of the software instrument to ensure that any kind of script app which needs it will function flawlessly in your account. Using a convenient tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the website hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate different settings with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your first hosting account ever, you will not experience any issues. In the same area you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, which means that whenever you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. As our platform allows you to employ a couple of PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can activate the instrument for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do this. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to go to the PHP Configuration section where you will find various options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is one of these options, so you don't need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP release for your account through the same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we've also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP release and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular site, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
