Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, which is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you want to protect your custom script, for example, you're able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A lot of ready-made script-driven applications, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to operate effectively as their core code is usually not free to modify. Sites which use the tool are often faster because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our custom-built cloud platform and you will be able to use it whatever the cloud web hosting package that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all accounts and it will take you just a few clicks to do that. Since we support numerous versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to activate Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you have not used yet. 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 tool, so you do not need any computer programming skills or previous experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application which needs Zend Optimizer without any difficulties, still when you are not sure what to do, you're able to contact our 24/7 tech support team and they can enable the instrument for you.
