Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular app which is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous organizations that make paid script applications, so in case you get such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers which are a part of our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which cloud website hosting you choose, you'll be able to use the instrument so that any script application that requires it will work properly as part of your account. Using a convenient instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate various functions with just a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you will not have any problems. In the same section you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, thus each time you move to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Because our platform enables you to use a couple of PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the tool for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
