Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular application which is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of companies that develop paid script applications, so if you get such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is available on our custom-built cloud platform and you will be able to use it regardless of the website hosting
package that you choose. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the accounts and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do that. Due to the fact that we support several different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used yet. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click instrument, therefore you do not need any computer programming skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer with no troubles, still when you are not sure how to proceed, you are able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they will enable the tool for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
Zend Optimizer is featured on all servers that comprise our cluster hosting platform, therefore you are able to use it for all of your script-driven apps with all of our semi-dedicated server
plans. It will be available all of the time even if you change the PHP release for your account because our feature-rich platform allows you to select from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Both changing your version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes a few clicks in the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the semi-dedicated accounts. In addition, you can also use a different release of PHP and enable or disable Zend for each individual domain that you host in your account. You can do this by using a php.ini file in a domain folder with several lines of program code in it. In case you don't have previous experience and you are unsure how to do that, our 24/7 technical support will assist.
