Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of organizations that make paid script apps, so in case you buy such an application for your site, you'll 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 shield your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to change it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting
When you obtain a shared website hosting from us, you're able to choose the PHP release, that will be active for your account depending on what your script apps require. You can activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel for all of the versions that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this section, you will be able to use a compact software tool that will allow you to control the php.ini file for the account and enable or disable PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, so you will not need any previous experience considering that enabling Zend Optimizer is as simple as clicking a button. More experienced users will be able to do the same thing by adding a php.ini file with the necessary code in a particular domain folder. If you need any help to activate the tool, you will be able to contact our tech support team at any time.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide and it takes just a few clicks to do that. After you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to head to the PHP Configuration section where you can find various options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you won't have to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP version for your account from the same section, you will have to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we've also left the option for more experienced users to set 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 website hosting account in general.
