Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is employed to encode 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 a lot of organizations that make paid script applications, so when you get such an application for your site, you'll probably 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 shield your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to alter it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers which are part of our advanced cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux cloud hosting you choose, you'll be able to take advantage of the software instrument to ensure that any script app that needs it will function properly in your account. By using a handy instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the website hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate a variety of settings with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this is your very first website hosting account ever, you won't have any problems. In the exact same section you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, thus each time you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform enables you to employ several PHP releases at once, more experienced users can enable the instrument for a particular site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We provide Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans. It is installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven app that you need to use requires it to function, you just have to enable it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also switch the PHP version which your web hosting account uses. For each and every new version which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used versions of PHP, so you won't have to do this each and every time. If you have more experience, you'll be able to take advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular website without the need of altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
