Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that's needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you'd like to protect your custom-written script, for example, you can use Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Countless ready-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to work efficiently because their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Sites which use the tool are typically speedier as their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all servers that are part of our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which cloud plan you select, you can use the tool so that any script app that needs it will operate properly as part of your account. By using a handy instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate a variety of options with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you will not have any troubles. In the same area you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, so any time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform allows you to work with a couple of PHP versions simultaneously, more advanced users can activate the tool for a particular site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
