Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by many corporations that create paid script applications, so if you buy such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and make sure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to change it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

When you get a cloud hosting through us, you're able to pick the PHP version, which will be active for the account based on what your script apps require. You can activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for any of the releases that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this section, you'll be able to employ a small tool which will allow you to handle the php.ini file for the account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions using On and Off buttons, which means that you will not need any previous experience because activating Zend Optimizer will be as easy as clicking a button. More skilled users can do the same by adding a php.ini file with the needed program code in a particular domain folder. If you need any assistance to activate the instrument, you can contact our tech support crew at any time.
