Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is employed 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 plenty of corporations which make paid script apps, so if you acquire such an app for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers which are a part of our advanced cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which website hosting plan you get, you can use the software instrument so that any script app which requires it will operate perfectly as part of your account. Using a convenient tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the website hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate a variety of settings with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first hosting account ever, you won't encounter any issues. In the same section you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, and whenever you move to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform enables you to take advantage of several PHP releases at once, more advanced users can enable the tool for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
