Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by many organizations which make paid script apps, so in case you acquire such an app for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and make sure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting
All the shared website hosting accounts which we offer are set up on our cutting-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are part of the clusters. For that reason, you're able to install and execute script-driven apps that need Zend irrespective of the package that you pick upon registration. The user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel which is included with the accounts will make the control over your web presence very simple and enabling Zend Optimizer makes no exception due to the fact that it will take a single click to do it. In addition, more experienced users can also put a php.ini file in a given domain folder and activate Zend just for a specific domain. Since you can switch between a number of PHP versions, you'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer for any of them in the very same way and manage both new and older applications from the same account.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans. It is present on our revolutionary cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven app that you need to use requires it to work, you just have to activate it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also change the PHP release that your website hosting account uses. For any new version which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia will remember your choice for previously used versions of PHP, therefore you will not have to do this each time. In the event that you have more experience, you are able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular domain without altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
