Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of companies which create paid script applications, so in case you get such an application for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are part of our innovative cloud hosting platform. No matter which shared hosting plan you select, you will be able to take advantage of the software tool to guarantee that any kind of script app which needs it will work properly in your account. By using a convenient instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate many different functions with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you won't experience any issues. In the very same section you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, which means that any time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Because our platform enables you to employ multiple PHP versions at once, more advanced users can activate the instrument for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
