Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is used to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of organizations that create paid script apps, so when you acquire such an application for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on our custom-built cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the shared hosting package that you choose. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the accounts and it'll take you as little as a few clicks to do that. Because we support many 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 have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change 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, so you won't need any computer programming skills or previous experience. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer with no troubles, but when you are unsure how to proceed, you are able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they'll enable the tool for you.
