Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is used to encrypt 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 a large number of companies which develop paid script apps, so if you get such an application 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 use Zend Guard to shield your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to change it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer can be found on our tailor-made cloud platform and you are able to use it whatever the cloud hosting package that you select. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all accounts and it'll take you as little as several clicks to do this. Considering that we support a number of different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used yet. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click instrument, so you do not need any computer programming skills or previous practical experience. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application that requires Zend Optimizer without difficulties, still when you're unsure how to proceed, you can get in touch with our 24/7 tech support team and they can enable the tool for you.
