Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app which is employed 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 a large number of corporations that create paid script apps, so if you buy such an app for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
If you purchase a Linux shared package through our company, you have the option to select the PHP release, which will be active for the account based on what your script apps require. You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for all of the versions that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this section, you are able to take advantage of a small tool that will allow you to handle the php.ini file for your account and enable or disable PHP extensions through On and Off buttons, so you won't need any kind of previous knowledge as activating Zend Optimizer is as simple as clicking a button. More experienced users will be able to do the same thing by placing a php.ini file with the necessary program code in a specific domain folder. If you need any assistance to activate the instrument, you're able to contact our technical support crew at any time.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we offer and it will take you only a few clicks to do this. After you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to go to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find many different options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you won't have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. As you can also change the PHP release for your account from the same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we have also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP release and 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 specific website, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
