Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular app that is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of companies that create paid script apps, so in case you obtain such an application for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

When you get a Linux website hosting package through our company, you have the option to select the PHP version, which will be active for your account based on what your script apps need. You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel for any of the versions that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this section, you can employ a compact software tool which will allow you to manage the php.ini file for your account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, which means that you won't need any kind of previous knowledge since activating Zend Optimizer is as easy as clicking a button. More advanced users will be able to do the same thing by adding a php.ini file with the required program code in a specific domain folder. In case you need any assistance to activate the tool, you're able to contact our tech support crew anytime.
