Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous companies that create paid script apps, so when you get such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

All of the hosting accounts that we offer are set up on our advanced cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers which are part of the clusters. For that reason, you'll be able to set up and execute script-driven apps which require Zend regardless of the package that you pick upon signup. The easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel that is included with the accounts will make the management of your online presence a breeze and activating Zend Optimizer is not an exception due to the fact that it'll take just a single click to do this. In addition, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and enable Zend just for a specific domain. As you can switch between a number of PHP releases, you can activate Zend Optimizer for them in the very same way and run both new and older apps in the same account.
