Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of companies that develop paid script apps, so if you buy such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers that are a part of our modern cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux shared website hosting package you acquire, you can use the software tool to guarantee that any script app that needs it will function properly within your account. Using a convenient tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate many different settings with a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your first web hosting account ever, you will not encounter any issues. In the same area you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, which means that any time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform allows you to employ a couple of PHP releases simultaneously, more experienced users can activate the tool for a particular site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
