Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of corporations that develop paid script applications, so in case you buy such an application for your site, you'll probably 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 code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better as 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 installed on all the servers that are part of our modern cloud hosting platform. No matter which Linux cloud hosting you pick, you will be able to activate the instrument to ensure that any kind of script app which requires it will work properly as part of your account. By using a convenient tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the website hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate various functions with a button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your first website hosting account ever, you will not experience any problems. In the same area you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, therefore any time you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Because our platform enables you to take advantage of a couple of PHP versions at once, more experienced users can enable the instrument for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
