Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app which is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of corporations that create paid script apps, so in case you obtain such an application for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will be unable to change it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting accounts which we provide are generated on our cutting-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are a part of the clusters. Consequently, you can install and execute script-driven applications that require Zend irrespective of the plan that you pick upon registration. The user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel that is included with the accounts will make the management of your world wide web presence very easy and activating Zend Optimizer makes no exception as it'll take only a single click to do it. In addition, more experienced users can also insert a php.ini file in a given domain folder and enable Zend just for a specific domain name. Since you can switch between a number of PHP versions, you can activate Zend Optimizer for any of them in the very same way and manage both new and older apps within the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we offer and it takes only a couple of clicks to do that. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to go to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find a variety of 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. Because you can also switch the PHP version for your account from the same section, you'll have to enable Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we have also left the option for more experienced users to set both the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular site, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
