Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of companies that develop paid script apps, so in case you purchase such an application for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers which are a part of our modern cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which web hosting you get, you will be able to take advantage of the tool to guarantee that any script app which requires it will operate properly in your account. Using a convenient instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate a variety of settings with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your very first hosting account ever, you will not encounter any difficulties. In the very same area you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, therefore whenever you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. As our platform allows you to work with several PHP versions at once, more advanced users can activate the instrument for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
