Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular app which is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by many corporations that develop paid script applications, so if you get such an app for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

If you purchase a cloud website hosting service from our company, you can choose the PHP release, that will be active for your account depending on what your script applications require. You can activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for all of the versions that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this area, you'll be able to use a small tool that will allow you to manage the php.ini file for the account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions through On and Off buttons, which means that you won't need any kind of previous knowledge considering that activating Zend Optimizer will be as simple as clicking a button. More advanced users can do the same by adding a php.ini file with the needed code in a particular domain folder. In case you need any help to activate the tool, you'll be able to contact our tech support team anytime.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You are able to activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do that. After you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to head to the PHP Configuration section where you can find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you don't need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP release for your account from the very same section, you'll need to enable Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we have also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific website, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
