Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you need to protect your custom script, for example, you are able to employ Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Countless pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to operate efficiently because their core code is often not free to change. Internet sites which use the tool are often faster since their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers which are part of our advanced cloud web hosting platform. No matter which Linux shared hosting you pick, you can take advantage of the tool so that any kind of script app that needs it will work perfectly within your account. By using a handy software instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate a variety of functions with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your first hosting account ever, you will not have any problems. In the exact same area you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, and any time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform enables you to use several PHP releases at once, more advanced users can activate the instrument for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
