Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous organizations that make paid script apps, so in case you acquire such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will be unable to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

All shared web hosting accounts that we provide are set up on our leading-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are a part of the clusters. For that reason, you'll be able to install and execute script-driven apps that need Zend regardless of the package that you pick upon signup. The easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel that is included with the accounts will make the management of your online presence very simple and enabling Zend Optimizer makes no exception since it'll take just a single click to do this. Of course, more experienced users can also insert a php.ini file in a given domain folder and use Zend only for a particular domain name. Since you can switch between a variety of PHP versions, you can enable Zend Optimizer for any of them in exactly the same way and run both new and older applications in the same account.
