Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular application which is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of corporations which develop paid script apps, so if you get such an application for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our in-house built cloud platform and you can use it whatever the cloud website hosting package that you choose. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the accounts and it will take you just a few clicks to do this. Because we support several different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you have not used so far. 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 instrument, so you don't need any computer programming skills or previous experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app that requires Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, still when you're not sure what you should do, you will be able to contact our 24/7 tech support crew and they can enable the instrument for you.
