Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of organizations which create paid script applications, so in case you buy such an app for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will be unable to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our custom cloud platform and you're able to use it whatever the cloud hosting package that you select. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all of the accounts and it'll take you as little as a couple of clicks to do that. Due to the fact that we support a number of different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you haven't used yet. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software tool, therefore you will not need any kind of computer programming skills or previous experience. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which needs Zend Optimizer with no troubles, yet when you are unsure what to do, you'll be able to contact our 24/7 technical support team and they'll enable the tool for you.
