Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular application that is used to encode 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 many corporations that create paid script apps, so when you obtain such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

When you buy a website hosting package through our company, you can select the PHP version, which will be active for the account based on what your script apps need. You can activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for any of the releases that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this area, you are able to take advantage of a compact tool which will allow you to control the php.ini file for your account and enable or disable PHP extensions using On and Off buttons, therefore you will not need any previous experience because activating Zend Optimizer is as simple as clicking a button. More skilled users can do the same thing by adding a php.ini file with the needed program code in a specific domain folder. If you need any help to activate the instrument, you will be able to contact our technical support crew at any time.
