Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of companies that make paid script applications, so when you get such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to change it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which shared web hosting plan you choose, you'll be able to use the instrument to guarantee that any kind of script application that needs it will operate properly within your account. By using a handy software instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate different functions with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you won't encounter any difficulties. In the very same area you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, therefore any time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. As our platform allows you to employ a couple of PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the tool for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
