Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you would like to protect your custom-written script, for example, you will be able to employ Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Countless ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to function correctly as their core code is usually not free to modify. Websites that use the tool are generally speedier since their code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are a part of our advanced cloud hosting platform. No matter which shared web hosting plan you obtain, you will be able to use the tool to ensure that any kind of script app that needs it will function perfectly as part of your account. Using a convenient software instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate a variety of settings with just a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your very first hosting account ever, you won't encounter any issues. In the exact same section you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, thus any time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. As our platform enables you to use multiple PHP releases at the same time, more advanced users can activate the instrument for a particular website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
