Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The second encrypts files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you'd like to protect your custom-written script, for example, you're able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Lots of pre-made script-driven apps, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to operate correctly as their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Websites that use the instrument are typically speedier since their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer can be found on our in-house built cloud platform and you're able to use it whatever the web hosting package that you select. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all accounts and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do that. Given that we support a number of 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'll have to activate Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you haven't used yet. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click application, and you do not need any coding skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without any troubles, still when you are unsure what you should do, you'll be able to contact our 24/7 tech support team and they will enable the tool for you.
