Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of organizations that develop paid script applications, so in case you purchase such an app for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are a part of our revolutionary cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which shared website hosting service you get, you can activate the tool to guarantee that any kind of script application which needs it will operate perfectly as part of your account. Using a handy instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the web hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate a variety of functions with a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your very first web hosting account ever, you will not experience any troubles. In the same section you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, and each time you move to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Because our platform enables you to use a couple of PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can enable 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 our semi-dedicated hosting services. It is installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven application that you wish to use requires it to work, you just have to enable it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel.
