Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you need to protect your custom script, for example, you're able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Countless pre-made script-driven applications, especially ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to work effectively since their core code is often not free to change. Websites that use the tool are normally quicker as their code is already optimized and precompiled.

By using a handy instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the web hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate different functions with just a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you will not have any difficulties. In the exact same section you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, which means that whenever you move to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click.
