Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. In case you wish to protect your custom-written script, for example, you will be able to employ Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Countless ready-made script-driven applications, particularly ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to operate properly since their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Internet sites which use the instrument are normally quicker as their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our in-house built cloud platform and you are able to use it whatever the web hosting package that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the accounts and it'll take you only several clicks to do that. Considering that we support several different 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 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 activate and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software tool, so you don't need any computer programming skills or previous experience. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application which needs Zend Optimizer without difficulties, but when you're unsure how to proceed, you're able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they can activate the instrument for you.
