Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of corporations that make paid script applications, so if you buy such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom-built cloud platform and you're able to use it whatever the hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all accounts and it'll take you as little as several clicks to do this. Considering that we support several different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you have not used yet. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click tool, so you will not need any programming skills or previous practical experience. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application that needs Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, but in case you're unsure how to proceed, you'll be able to contact our 24/7 technical support team and they will activate the tool for you.
