Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, which is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you wish to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you'll be able to use Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. A number of ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to operate correctly as their core code is generally not free to modify. Websites which use the instrument are often speedier since their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

All cloud hosting accounts which we provide are generated on our advanced cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are part of the clusters. Because of this, you'll be able to install and execute script-driven applications that need Zend irrespective of the plan that you pick upon signup. The user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with the accounts will make the control over your online presence very simple and enabling Zend Optimizer makes no exception as it'll take just a single click to do this. In addition, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a specific domain folder and use Zend only for a specific domain name. As you can switch between a number of different PHP releases, you can enable Zend Optimizer for them in the very same way and manage both new and older applications in the same account.
