Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of companies which make paid script apps, so if you buy such an app for your website, you'll most likely 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 ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all servers that are part of our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which website hosting you choose, you can take advantage of the software instrument to ensure that any script app that requires it will operate flawlessly in your account. Using a convenient instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate various functions with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your very first website hosting account ever, you won't encounter any issues. In the very same section you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, and each time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. As our platform enables you to use a couple of PHP releases at once, more experienced users can enable the instrument for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
