Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is employed to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by numerous corporations which make paid script apps, so when you purchase such an app for your site, you will probably 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 protect your code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to alter it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom-built cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the shared website hosting plan that you choose. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the accounts and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do that. Because we support several different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll need to activate Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you haven't used yet. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click tool, therefore you do not need any kind of coding skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application that requires Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, but when you're not sure what you should do, you will be able to contact our 24/7 tech support crew and they'll activate the tool for you.
