Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is used to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of organizations which create paid script applications, so in case you buy such an application for your website, you'll probably 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 protect your program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to change it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.

Once you go to this area, you will be able to take advantage of a compact software tool that will allow you to handle the php.ini file for the account and enable or disable PHP extensions through On and Off buttons, therefore you won't need any kind of previous experience as activating Zend Optimizer will be as easy as clicking a button.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated hosting. It's present on our innovative cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven app that you need to use requires it to function, you just have to activate it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also change the PHP release which your website hosting account uses. For each and every new release which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used versions of PHP, so you will not have to do that each and every time. In the event that you have more experience, you're able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set a different PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular domain name without the need of altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
