Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you want to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you'll be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Various ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to function correctly because their core code is generally not free to modify. Internet sites that use the instrument are generally quicker because their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our custom-made cloud platform and you are able to use it whatever the cloud hosting package that you select. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the accounts and it'll take you only a few clicks to do that. Because we support a number of different releases 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'll have to enable Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you haven't used so far. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software tool, so you will not need any programming skills or previous experience. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application that needs Zend Optimizer without difficulties, still when you're unsure what you should do, you're able to contact our 24/7 technical support team and they will enable the instrument for you.
