Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is used 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 number of corporations which create paid script applications, so in case you obtain such an app for your website, you will probably 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 secure your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed faster.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer comes with all servers that are part of our revolutionary cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which cloud web hosting you get, you can use the tool to ensure that any script app which requires it will operate properly in your account. Using a convenient instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate many different functions with a button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you will not experience any issues. In the exact same section you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, so any time you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform enables you to take advantage of several PHP releases simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the instrument for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have installed Zend Optimizer on all of the servers which are a part of our top-notch cloud web hosting platform and since all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you can enable and take advantage of Zend for any kind of script app which you need to use with just a click.
