Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread 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 plenty of corporations which develop paid script applications, so when you acquire such an application for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on our in-house built cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the shared web hosting package that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the accounts and it will take you just several clicks to do this. Because we support a number of 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'll need to enable Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you have not used so far. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software instrument, therefore you do not need any kind of coding skills or previous expertise. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which needs Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, but when you're unsure what to do, you're able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they'll enable the tool for you.
