Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that's required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you need to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you'll be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A large number of pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to work correctly because their core code is often not free to change. Sites which use the instrument are typically speedier since their code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers which are part of our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which shared hosting you acquire, you can activate the instrument to guarantee that any kind of script application which needs it will function perfectly within your account. By using a handy software tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate a variety of settings with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your very first website hosting account ever, you will not experience any problems. In the same section you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, therefore each time you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform allows you to take advantage of a couple of PHP releases at the same time, more experienced users can enable the tool for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
