Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application that is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by many companies that make paid script apps, so if you buy such an app for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are a part of our revolutionary cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which web hosting plan you pick, you can activate the instrument so that any kind of script app which requires it will work perfectly in your account. Using a convenient software instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate different options with a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your first web hosting account ever, you won't have any issues. In the very same section you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, and any time you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Since our platform enables you to work with a couple of PHP versions at the same time, more experienced users can activate the tool for a particular site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
