Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is used 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 organizations which develop paid script applications, so when you get such an application for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are a part of our revolutionary cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which cloud plan you pick, you can use the software instrument so that any script app that requires it will function flawlessly in your account. By using a convenient software instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the web hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate many different functions with a button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first hosting account ever, you won't experience any troubles. In the very same section you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, thus any time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform allows you to employ several PHP releases at once, more experienced users can activate the tool for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
