Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is used to encode 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 a lot of companies that make paid script applications, so when you buy such an application for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer can be found on our in-house made cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the accounts and it'll take you just a few clicks to do this. Because we support numerous 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 haven't used so far. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software instrument, so you will not need any kind of coding skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, yet when you are not sure what you should do, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support team and they can activate the tool for you.
