Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread app which is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of organizations which create paid script apps, so when you buy such an application for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on our in-house built cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the cloud hosting package that you select. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the accounts and it'll take you only several clicks to do this. Given that we support a number of different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you have not used yet. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software instrument, therefore you will not need any kind of coding skills or previous practical experience. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without any difficulties, but if you're not sure what you should do, you'll be able to contact our 24/7 technical support crew and they'll enable the instrument for you.
