Zend Optimizer is a tool, that 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 code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of corporations that make paid script applications, so if you get such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers which are part of our revolutionary cloud hosting platform. No matter which Linux shared hosting you get, you can activate the tool to guarantee that any kind of script application that requires it will function flawlessly as part of your account. Using a convenient software tool in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate many different settings with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this is your very first web hosting account ever, you won't experience any issues. In the exact same area you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, and any time you move to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Because our platform enables you to take advantage of a couple of PHP releases at the same time, more advanced users can activate the instrument for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
