Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you want to protect your custom-written script, for example, you are able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A lot of ready-made script-driven applications, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to operate efficiently because their core code is generally not free to modify. Sites which use the tool are usually quicker as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our in-house built cloud platform and you can use it whatever the shared hosting plan that you choose. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the accounts and it'll take you just several clicks to do that. Since we support numerous 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 each time you switch the version to one you haven't used so far. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software instrument, so you will not need any coding skills or previous practical experience. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app that requires Zend Optimizer without troubles, but if you're not sure what to do, you'll be able to contact our 24/7 technical support crew and they'll activate the tool for you.
