Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of organizations which make paid script applications, so in case you buy such an application for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you may 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. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers that are a part of our revolutionary cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux shared hosting you get, you'll be able to take advantage of the tool to ensure that any script app which needs it will function flawlessly within your account. By using a handy tool in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the website hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate many different settings with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you won't experience any issues. In the exact same area you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, which means that whenever you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Because our platform allows you to work with a couple of PHP releases simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the tool for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you just a few clicks to do that. Once you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to go to the PHP Configuration section where you can find many different options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, therefore you don't need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Because you can also change the PHP release for your account through the same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we have also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular site, but not for the website hosting account in general.
