Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular application that is employed to encode 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 large number of corporations which develop paid script applications, so in case you acquire such an app for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed faster.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
All of the shared hosting accounts that we provide are generated on our advanced cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is present on all servers that are a part of the clusters. For that reason, you can install and run script-driven applications which require Zend regardless of the package that you pick upon signup. The easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel that is included with the accounts shall make the control over your world wide web presence a piece of cake and activating Zend Optimizer makes no exception as it will take just a single click to do this. Of course, more experienced users can also insert a php.ini file in a given domain folder and activate Zend just for a specific domain. Since you can switch between a variety of PHP releases, you'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer for all of them in exactly the same way and run both new and older applications from the same account.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we offer and it'll take you just a few clicks to do that. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to head to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find many different options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you will not have to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, 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 particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular site, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
