Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is employed to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by many companies that make paid script apps, so when you acquire such an app for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to change it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are a part of our advanced cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux cloud website hosting you choose, you'll be able to use the tool to ensure that any kind of script application that requires it will function properly within your account. By using a handy software tool from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the website hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate many different settings with just a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first web hosting account ever, you won't encounter any troubles. In the same section you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, thus each time you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. As our platform enables you to employ a couple of PHP versions at the same time, more experienced users can activate the tool for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
