Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of organizations that make paid script apps, so when you obtain such an app for your site, you will 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 program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers that are a part of our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which website hosting you obtain, you can take advantage of the software instrument so that any kind of script app that needs it will operate properly in your account. By using a convenient tool in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate a variety of options with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you won't have any issues. In the exact same area you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, so whenever you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Because our platform enables you to use a couple of PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the instrument for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

More tech-savvy users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP release and to activate Zend Optimizer only for a separate website by putting a php.ini file with the required program code in the corresponding domain folder.
