Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is used to encode 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 corporations which develop paid script applications, so in case you acquire such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed much faster.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our in-house built cloud platform and you will be able to use it regardless of the shared website hosting plan that you select. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the accounts and it'll take you just several clicks to do that. Because we support several different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to enable Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you haven't used so far. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software instrument, and you won't need any computer programming skills or previous experience. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which needs Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, yet if you're unsure what you should do, you will be able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they'll enable the tool for you.
