Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app that is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of corporations that make paid script applications, so when you get such an app for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

All shared web hosting accounts that we provide are created on our state-of-the-art cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is present on all the servers which are a part of the clusters. Therefore, you can install and run script-driven apps which require Zend regardless of the package that you select upon signup. The easy to navigate Hepsia Control Panel that comes with the accounts will make the control over your web presence a breeze and enabling Zend Optimizer is not an exception since it will take only a single click to do it. Furthermore, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and enable Zend only for a specific domain name. Because you can switch between a number of PHP versions, you'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer for all of them in the very same way and manage both new and older applications within the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we offer and it takes just a couple of clicks to do this. When you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to head to the PHP Configuration section where you will find various options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, therefore you won't need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Because you can also change the PHP version for your account from the very same section, you will need to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we have also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP release and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular site, but not for the hosting account in general.
