Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is employed to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of corporations which make paid script applications, so when you get such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our in-house made cloud platform and you are able to use it whatever the cloud web hosting package that you select. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the accounts and it will take you as little as a couple of clicks to do that. Considering 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 each time you switch the version to one you haven't used yet. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software tool, therefore you do not need any programming skills or previous practical experience. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app that needs Zend Optimizer without troubles, but when you are not sure what to do, you can contact our 24/7 tech support team and they'll activate the tool for you.
