Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you'd like to protect your custom script, for example, you will be able to take advantage of 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 site. Lots of ready-made script-driven applications, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to work correctly since their core code is usually not free to modify. Websites which use the instrument are normally speedier since their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers which are part of our advanced cloud website hosting platform. No matter which hosting plan you select, you will be able to use the software tool so that any script application which needs it will work flawlessly in your account. Using a handy tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate a variety of options with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your very first hosting account ever, you won't have any difficulties. In the exact same section you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, therefore whenever you move to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Because our platform allows you to use several PHP versions at once, more experienced users can enable the instrument for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
