Zend Optimizer is a popular software, which is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you need to protect your custom script, for example, you can use Zend Guard and your program code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Lots of ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to function effectively as their core code is usually not free to change. Sites which use the tool are generally quicker as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer is available on our tailor-made cloud platform and you can use it whatever the cloud hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the accounts and it will take you as little as several clicks to do this. Since we support a number of different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you have not used so far. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click instrument, and you won't need any computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer without troubles, yet if you're unsure what to do, you are able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support team and they'll enable the tool for you.
