Zend Optimizer is a popular software, which is required to run files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you'd like to protect your custom-written script, for example, you'll be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. A lot of pre-made script-driven apps, especially ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to work effectively since their core code is usually not free to change. Websites that use the tool are often speedier as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our in-house built cloud platform and you'll be able to use it whatever the cloud web hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all accounts and it'll take you as little as a couple of clicks to do this. Given that we support several different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you haven't used so far. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click tool, and you will not need any computer programming skills or previous experience. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without any troubles, but when you are unsure what you should do, you will be able to contact our 24/7 tech support team and they can enable the instrument for you.
