Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application which is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of organizations which make paid script applications, so when you obtain such an application for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer can be found on our in-house built cloud platform and you're able to use it regardless of the cloud web hosting package that you choose. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all accounts and it will take you just a few clicks to do this. Given that we support a number of different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2), you will have to enable Zend Optimizer each time you switch 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 disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software tool, and you won't need any computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app that requires Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, still in case you are unsure what you should do, you're able to contact our 24/7 technical support team and they will enable the instrument for you.
