Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is used 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 numerous corporations that create paid script apps, so in case you purchase such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

If you purchase a Linux cloud web hosting package from our company, you are able to choose the PHP release, which will be active for the account based on what your script applications require. You can activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel for any of the releases that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this area, you can take advantage of a small tool which will allow you to handle the php.ini file for the account and enable or disable PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, which means that you won't need any previous experience as enabling Zend Optimizer is as easy as clicking a button. More experienced users can do the same by placing a php.ini file with the needed program code in a specific domain folder. In case you need any assistance to activate the tool, you are able to contact our tech support team at any time.
