Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular app that is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous corporations that make paid script applications, so in case you get such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers that are part of our revolutionary cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux website hosting package you choose, you'll be able to take advantage of the software instrument so that any script application that requires it will function perfectly within your account. Using a convenient software instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the website hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate different settings with a button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first web hosting account ever, you won't encounter any troubles. In the same section you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, so whenever you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform allows you to work with several PHP releases at once, more experienced users can activate the instrument for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
