Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective 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 app 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 shield your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is present on our in-house built cloud platform and you are able to use it whatever the shared website hosting plan that you select. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the accounts and it will take you only a few clicks to do that. Due to the fact that we support a number of 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 need to enable Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used so far. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software tool, so you will not need any computer programming skills or previous experience. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application that requires Zend Optimizer without troubles, but if you're not sure what to do, you'll be able to contact our 24/7 technical support team and they will activate the tool for you.
