Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is used to encode 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 numerous organizations that make paid script apps, so when you acquire such an application for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our custom-built cloud platform and you are able to use it whatever the shared hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the accounts and it'll take you as little as several clicks to do that. Given that we support a number of different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to activate Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you have not used so far. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software tool, and you will not need any coding skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application that requires Zend Optimizer without any troubles, yet if you're unsure what to do, you can contact our 24/7 tech support team and they'll enable the instrument for you.
