Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of companies that make paid script applications, so in case you buy such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting
If you get a shared website hosting plan from our company, you will be able to select the PHP release, which will be active for your account according to what your script applications require. You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for all of the releases that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this section, you can employ a small software tool which will allow you to handle the php.ini file for your account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions using On and Off buttons, so you won't need any kind of previous knowledge as enabling Zend Optimizer will be as simple as clicking a button. More advanced users can do the same thing by adding a php.ini file with the necessary code in a particular domain folder. If you need any assistance to activate the tool, you'll be able to contact our technical support crew anytime.
