Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application that is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of corporations that create paid script applications, so when you acquire such an application for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to alter it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers that are a part of our revolutionary cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux shared web hosting you get, you can activate the instrument to ensure that any kind of script application which needs it will work perfectly within your account. Using a handy tool in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the web hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate many different options with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your very first hosting account ever, you won't experience any troubles. In the same area you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, which means that whenever you change to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform enables you to use multiple PHP versions at once, more advanced users can activate the instrument for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
