Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of companies that develop paid script apps, so if you get such an app for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are part of our advanced cloud web hosting platform. No matter which shared website hosting plan you pick, you'll be able to take advantage of the software instrument so that any kind of script app that needs it will function perfectly as part of your account. By using a handy tool from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate a variety of settings with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first web hosting account ever, you won't experience any issues. In the same area you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, so each time you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Since our platform allows you to use a couple of PHP releases at once, more experienced users can enable the instrument for a particular website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
