Learn what precisely Zend Optimizer is and the way it can change the overall performance of any PHP app.
Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous organizations that create paid script applications, so if you obtain such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers that are a part of our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux shared hosting
you obtain, you can activate the software tool to ensure that any script app which requires it will function perfectly within your account. Using a handy instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate different settings with a button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this is your very first website hosting account ever, you will not have any issues. In the exact same section you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, which means that each time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Because our platform enables you to use multiple PHP releases at the same time, more experienced users can enable the tool for a particular website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
Zend Optimizer is featured on all the servers that comprise our cluster website hosting platform, therefore you are able to use it for all of your script-driven applications with any of our semi-dedicated server
packages. It is available at all times even when you change the PHP release for your account as our feature-rich platform allows you to select from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5.

What's more, you can also employ a different version of PHP and enable or disable Zend for each individual website that you host in your account.
