Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you wish to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you can take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Many pre-made script-driven applications, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to work correctly as their core code is usually not free to change. Websites which use the tool are usually speedier as their code is already optimized and precompiled.

The intuitive Hepsia Control Panel that is featured with the accounts will make the control over your online presence very easy and enabling Zend Optimizer is not an exception as it will take only a single click to do it. Of course, more experienced users can also put a php.ini file in a specific domain folder and use Zend only for a particular domain.
