Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you would like to protect your custom script, for example, you're able to employ Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Numerous pre-made script-driven applications, in particular ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to operate properly because their core code is often not free to change. Sites which use the instrument are usually quicker as their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our in-house made cloud platform and you can use it whatever the website hosting package that you choose. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all of the accounts and it will take you only a few clicks to do that. Given that we support several different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to activate Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you have not used yet. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software tool, therefore you do not need any computer programming skills or previous practical experience. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer with no troubles, but in case you are not sure how to proceed, you'll be able to contact our 24/7 technical support team and they will activate the instrument for you.
