Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by many corporations that create paid script apps, so when you get such an application for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.
Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting
All website hosting accounts which we provide are created on our cutting-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are a part of the clusters. Consequently, you are able to set up and execute script-driven apps which need Zend irrespective of the plan that you select upon registration. The user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel that comes with the accounts shall make the control over your world wide web presence a breeze and activating Zend Optimizer makes no exception since it will take a single click to do this. Furthermore, more experienced users can also insert a php.ini file in a given domain folder and enable Zend just for a specific domain. As you can switch between a number of PHP releases, you'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer for them in the very same way and run both new and older applications within the same account.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we supply and it'll take you only a few clicks to do that. After you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to go to the PHP Configuration section where you can find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you do not need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP release for your account through the very same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we have also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing 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.
