Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app which is employed to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous companies which create paid script applications, so when you acquire such an application for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to change it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on our in-house made cloud platform and you'll be able to use it regardless of the hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all accounts and it will take you as little as a few clicks to do that. Considering that we support several different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used yet. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click tool, and you will not need any kind of computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application that needs Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, but in case you are unsure how to proceed, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support team and they'll activate the tool for you.
