Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of organizations which create paid script apps, so when you buy such an application for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers that are part of our modern cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux shared website hosting you pick, you'll be able to use the tool to guarantee that any kind of script application that needs it will operate properly as part of your account. By using a handy instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the website hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate a variety of options with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you won't experience any problems. In the same section you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, which means that whenever you move to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. As our platform enables you to take advantage of a couple of PHP versions at once, more experienced users can enable the instrument for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
