Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you want to protect your custom-made script, for example, you will be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Lots of ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to operate effectively because their core code is often not free to change. Websites which use the instrument are usually faster as their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers that are a part of our modern cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux website hosting package you pick, you'll be able to activate the software tool to guarantee that any script app which needs it will operate flawlessly in your account. By using a convenient instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the web hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate various options with just a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first hosting account ever, you will not experience any problems. In the same section you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, thus any time you move to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform enables you to employ multiple PHP releases at the same time, more experienced users can activate the instrument for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
