Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that's needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you need to protect your custom script, for example, you are able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Countless pre-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to operate effectively because their core code is generally not free to modify. Sites that use the tool are typically faster since their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on our in-house made cloud platform and you can use it whatever the website hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the accounts and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do that. Due to the fact that we support numerous releases 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 will need to enable Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you haven't used so far. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software instrument, and you don't need any computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app that requires Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, still when you're not sure what to do, you are able to contact our 24/7 technical support crew and they will enable the tool for you.
