Zend Optimizer is a popular software, which is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you wish to protect your custom script, for example, you're able to use Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A number of ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to work efficiently as their core code is often not free to change. Websites that use the tool are often speedier since their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are a part of our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform.

Using a handy tool in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all of the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate a variety of options with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your very 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, thus any time you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Since our platform allows you to employ a couple of PHP versions simultaneously, more advanced users can enable the instrument for a particular site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
