Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread app 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 that make paid script applications, so in case you acquire such an application for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom-made cloud platform and you will be able to use it regardless of the cloud hosting package that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the accounts and it'll take you only several clicks to do that. Considering that we support many different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to enable Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you haven't used yet. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click software instrument, so you do not need any computer programming skills or previous experience. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application that needs Zend Optimizer without difficulties, yet when you are unsure what you should do, you can contact our 24/7 tech support crew and they will enable the instrument for you.
