Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application which is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of organizations that create paid script apps, so in case you obtain such an application for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers which are part of our modern cloud hosting platform. No matter which cloud hosting plan you obtain, you'll be able to activate the software tool to ensure that any script application which requires it will function flawlessly within your account. Using a convenient tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate a variety of functions with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first web hosting account ever, you will not encounter any troubles. In the very same section you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, thus each time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Because our platform allows you to use several PHP releases at the same time, more experienced users can enable the tool for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
