Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular application that is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of companies which develop paid script apps, so in case you buy such an app for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is accessible on our in-house made cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the website hosting plan that you select. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the accounts and it will take you as little as a few clicks to do that. Because we support many 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'll have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used so far. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software instrument, so you do not need any computer programming skills or previous experience. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app that needs Zend Optimizer without difficulties, still when you are unsure how to proceed, you're able to contact our 24/7 tech support team and they'll activate the instrument for you.
