Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app that is employed 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 plenty of organizations that make paid script applications, so if you buy such an application for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to change it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer is available on our in-house made cloud platform and you are able to use it whatever the shared web hosting
package that you choose. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the accounts and it will take you just several clicks to do this. Because we support numerous releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to activate Zend Optimizer each 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 operated with a point-and-click tool, so you do not need any coding skills or previous experience. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app that needs Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, yet when you're not sure how to proceed, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support team and they'll enable the instrument for you.
