Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by many corporations which create paid script apps, so if you buy such an app for your site, 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 can also use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.

All the shared web hosting accounts which we provide are created on our leading-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is present on all the servers which are part of the clusters.

The user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel that is included with the accounts shall make the control over your web presence very simple and enabling Zend Optimizer is not an exception since it will take just a single click to do it. Of course, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a specific domain folder and use Zend just for a particular domain name. Because you can switch between a number of different PHP versions, you can activate Zend Optimizer for them in exactly the same way and manage both new and older applications from the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages. It's present on our innovative cloud platform, so if any script-driven app that you wish to use requires it to function, you just need to activate it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also change the PHP release that your web hosting account uses.

Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used versions of PHP, therefore you won't have to do this each time. If you have more experience, you're able to benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set another PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
