Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of organizations that make paid script apps, so in case you purchase such an application for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can 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 any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all servers that are part of our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux cloud web hosting you acquire, you will be able to use the instrument to guarantee that any script application which needs it will work flawlessly within your account. Using a convenient instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate many different options with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first website hosting account ever, you will not have any problems. In the very same section you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, which means that whenever you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. As our platform allows you to take advantage of a couple of PHP releases at the same time, more advanced users can activate the tool for a particular site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
