Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that's needed to run files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you want to protect your custom-made script, for example, you're able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Countless pre-made script-driven apps, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to work efficiently as their core code is usually not free to change. Sites which use the tool are normally quicker since their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer can be found on our custom-made cloud platform and you're able to use it regardless of the shared website hosting plan that you select. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the accounts and it will take you only a few clicks to do that. Given that we support many different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll need to enable Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used yet. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click application, therefore you don't need any programming skills or previous experience. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app that needs Zend Optimizer without difficulties, still if you are unsure how to proceed, you will be able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they'll activate the tool for you.
