Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of companies that make paid script apps, so if you purchase such an app for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to change it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom cloud platform and you will be able to use it regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you choose. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all accounts and it will take you as little as several clicks to do that. Considering that we support several different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll need to enable Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you haven't used so far. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click instrument, so you don't need any kind of programming skills or previous practical experience. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application that requires Zend Optimizer without difficulties, yet when you are unsure what you should do, you will be able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support team and they'll activate the tool for you.
