Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular application that is used to encode 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 lots of corporations that create paid script apps, so if you obtain such an app for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will be unable to change it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our tailor-made cloud platform and you're able to use it regardless of the shared web hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all accounts and it will take you as little as several clicks to do that. Since we support many different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you haven't used so far. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click application, therefore you won't need any coding skills or previous experience. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which needs Zend Optimizer without troubles, but if you're not sure what to do, you will be able to contact our 24/7 tech support crew and they'll activate the tool for you.
