Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that's required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of corporations that develop paid script applications, so in case you get such an app for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed a lot faster.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our tailor-made cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the shared hosting package that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the accounts and it will take you only several clicks to do that. Since we support several different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2), you will need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you haven't used yet. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click tool, and you don't need any kind of programming skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which needs Zend Optimizer without difficulties, yet if you are unsure what you should do, you will be able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they can enable the instrument for you.
