Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a well-known app 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 program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of companies which develop paid script apps, so if you obtain such an application for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the cloud hosting package that you choose. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the accounts and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do that. Given that we support a number of different versions 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 need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you haven't used so far. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click tool, so you will not need any kind of coding skills or previous expertise. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without difficulties, yet if you are unsure what to do, you can contact our 24/7 technical support crew and they'll enable the instrument for you.
