Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The second 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 would like to protect your custom script, for instance, you are able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Lots of pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to operate properly as their core code is usually not free to change. Websites that use the tool are generally faster because their code is already optimized and precompiled.

All cloud hosting accounts which we offer are set up on our state-of-the-art cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is present on all servers that are a part of the clusters. Because of this, you'll be able to install and execute script-driven applications which require Zend regardless of the plan that you choose upon registration. The user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel which is featured with the accounts will make the management of your online presence very easy and activating Zend Optimizer is not an exception due to the fact that it will take a single click to do it. Furthermore, more experienced users can also insert a php.ini file in a given domain folder and activate Zend only for a particular domain name. Since you can switch between many different PHP releases, you'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer for them in the very same way and run both new and older apps within the same account.
