Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular app that is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of corporations that make paid script apps, so if you get such an app for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to change it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

All of the website hosting accounts that we offer are created on our state-of-the-art cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is set up on all of the servers which are a part of the clusters. Therefore, you're able to install and execute script-driven applications which require Zend regardless of the package that you pick upon registration. The easy to navigate Hepsia Control Panel which is featured with the accounts will make the management of your web presence very easy and activating Zend Optimizer is not an exception due to the fact that it'll take a single click to do it. Of course, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and enable Zend just for a specific domain. Since you can switch between many different PHP releases, you will be able to enable Zend Optimizer for them in the very same way and run both new and older applications in the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

In addition, you may also use a different version of PHP and enable or disable Zend for each individual website that you host from your account. You can do this by employing a php.ini file in a domain folder with several lines of code inside it.
