Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of corporations which make paid script apps, so in case you buy such an application for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom-built cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the web hosting package that you select. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all of the accounts and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do that. Because we support a number of different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used so far. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software tool, so you do not need any computer programming skills or previous practical experience. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app that requires Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, yet in case you are not sure how to proceed, you are able to contact our 24/7 tech support crew and they can activate the tool for you.
