Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you wish to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you're able to use Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. A number of ready-made script-driven applications, particularly ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to operate correctly as their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Internet sites which use the tool are usually faster as their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers which are part of our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux cloud website hosting package you acquire, you will be able to take advantage of the tool so that any kind of script app that requires it will operate perfectly within your account. By using a convenient software instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate different functions with a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your first hosting account ever, you will not have any troubles. In the very same section you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, therefore each time you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Since our platform enables you to take advantage of a couple of PHP releases simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the instrument for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
