Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is used to encrypt 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 a large number of companies which develop paid script apps, so in case you purchase such an app for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers which are part of our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux cloud plan you choose, you can activate the software tool so that any kind of script application which needs it will operate properly within your account. Using a convenient software tool in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate many different options with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first website hosting account ever, you will not encounter any problems. In the exact same section you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, therefore whenever you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click.
