Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous companies which create paid script applications, so when you purchase such an application for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers which are a part of our advanced cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which cloud hosting you select, you'll be able to use the tool to ensure that any kind of script application which requires it will operate perfectly within your account. By using a handy software instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate many different functions with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this is your very first hosting account ever, you will not experience any issues. In the very same section you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, thus each time you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform enables you to employ a couple of PHP releases at once, more experienced users can enable the tool for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
