Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is employed to encode 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 a large number of organizations which make paid script apps, so when you get such an app for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are a part of our modern cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which shared hosting you get, you will be able to take advantage of the software tool so that any script app which requires it will function properly as part of your account. By using a handy software instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate a variety of settings with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first website hosting account ever, you will not experience any problems. In the exact same section you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, so whenever you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Since our platform enables you to use multiple PHP releases simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the tool for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
