Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread app that 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 a lot of organizations that create paid script applications, so if you buy such an application for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our custom cloud platform and you will be able to use it whatever the shared website hosting plan that you select. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all accounts and it will take you just several clicks to do that. Considering that we support several different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll need to enable Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used so far. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software tool, and you do not need any kind of coding skills or previous experience. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application which needs Zend Optimizer without any troubles, but when you're unsure what you should do, you can contact our 24/7 technical support crew and they can activate the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We provide Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. It is present on our revolutionary cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven app that you'd like to use requires it to function, you just have to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also change the PHP release that your hosting account uses. For each and every new version which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia will remember your choice for previously used releases of PHP, which means that you will not need to do this each time. In case you have more experience, you're able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set another PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific site without altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
