Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by many corporations that make paid script applications, so when you get such an application for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to alter it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all servers that are part of our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. No matter which Linux cloud web hosting you get, you will be able to activate the instrument to ensure that any kind of script app which needs it will work properly in your account. Using a handy software tool in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate a variety of settings with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you won't have any problems. In the very same section you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, so any time you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Since our platform enables you to work with a couple of PHP versions at the same time, more experienced users can enable the instrument for a particular site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
