Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread app 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 program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of corporations that make paid script applications, so when you obtain such an app for your website, you'll most likely 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 shield your program code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to alter it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

When you get a Linux shared web hosting package from us, you can select the PHP release, that will be active for your account depending on what your script apps require. You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel for any of the versions that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this section, you are able to employ a compact software tool that will allow you to control the php.ini file for the account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, which means that you won't need any kind of previous knowledge considering that enabling Zend Optimizer is as simple as clicking a button. More skilled users can do the same thing by placing a php.ini file with the needed program code in a particular domain folder.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we supply and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do that.

Zend is one of these options, therefore you won't have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button.
