Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is used 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 many organizations that develop paid script applications, so if you acquire such an app for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

All the hosting accounts that we provide are created on our state-of-the-art cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers which are a part of the clusters. Because of this, you can set up and execute script-driven applications that require Zend whatever the plan that you select upon signup. The easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel that is featured with the accounts will make the management of your online presence a breeze and enabling Zend Optimizer is not an exception since it will take a single click to do it. Furthermore, more experienced users can also insert a php.ini file in a specific domain folder and enable Zend just for a particular domain name. Since you can switch between many different PHP releases, you'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer for all of them in exactly the same way and run both new and older applications in the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

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