Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that's required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encrypts files created in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you'd like to protect your custom script, for example, you can take advantage of 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 website. Many ready-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to function correctly as their core code is often not free to change. Websites which use the tool are often speedier as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom-built cloud platform and you're able to use it whatever the cloud hosting package that you choose. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the accounts and it'll take you as little as several clicks to do this. Considering 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 will have to activate Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you haven't used so far. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software instrument, and you do not need any coding skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app that requires Zend Optimizer without any troubles, still when you're unsure what to do, you can contact our 24/7 tech support team and they will activate the instrument for you.

If you change the version back, Zend will already be active. More tech-savvy users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP version and to activate Zend Optimizer just for a separate website by putting a php.ini file with the needed program code inside the corresponding domain folder.
