Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by many organizations which create paid script apps, so when you purchase such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to change it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers which are a part of our innovative cloud web hosting platform. No matter which Linux hosting
you choose, you'll be able to take advantage of the instrument to ensure that any script application that requires it will function properly within your account. Using a convenient tool in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate various options with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first web hosting account ever, you will not experience any issues. In the same area you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, and each time you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform allows you to use a couple of PHP versions at the same time, more advanced users can activate the tool for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Zend Optimizer is present on all of the servers that comprise our cluster web hosting platform, therefore you are able to use it for all your script-driven apps with all of our semi-dedicated server
