Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is used to encrypt 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 corporations which create paid script apps, so when you buy such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.
Zend Optimizer in Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers which are a part of our revolutionary cloud website hosting platform. No matter which hosting you acquire, you'll be able to activate the instrument to ensure that any kind of script application that requires it will function properly within your account. Using a handy tool in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the web hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate a variety of functions with a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you won't encounter any troubles. In the same section you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, so whenever you move to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Because our platform allows you to employ multiple PHP releases simultaneously, more advanced users can activate the instrument for a particular site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
