Zend Optimizer is a software tool, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of corporations which create paid script apps, so if you purchase such an application for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the shared web hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the accounts and it'll take you just a few clicks to do that. Due to the fact that we support several 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 will need to enable Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you have not used so far. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software instrument, therefore you don't need any programming skills or previous experience. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which needs Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, still if you're unsure how to proceed, you can get in touch with our 24/7 tech support team and they will activate the instrument for you.
