Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous organizations that make paid script applications, so if you obtain such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer comes with all servers that are part of our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. No matter which Linux website hosting you choose, you'll be able to use the tool so that any kind of script app that needs it will work properly as part of your account. By using a convenient tool in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate different settings with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your very first web hosting account ever, you won't have any difficulties. In the very same section you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, so whenever you move to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. As our platform allows you to take advantage of a couple of PHP versions at once, more advanced users can activate the instrument for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. It's present on our cutting-edge cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven application that you would like to use requires it to work, you just need to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also switch the PHP version that your hosting account uses. For each new version that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used releases of PHP, which means that you won't have to do that each and every time. If you have more experience, you are able to benefit from the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set another PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular website without altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
