Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you need to protect your custom-made script, for example, you will be able to use Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Numerous ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to function efficiently since their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Websites which use the tool are normally speedier since their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are part of our innovative cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which hosting package you select, you'll be able to use the software tool so that any script app that needs it will work flawlessly in your account. By using a handy instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the web hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate many different options with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your first web hosting account ever, you won't have any issues. In the exact same area you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, and each time you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Because our platform enables you to work with multiple PHP versions at the same time, more advanced users can activate the tool for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
