Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 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 which make paid script applications, so when you buy such an app for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will be unable to alter it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

If you get a Linux shared hosting through us, you will be able to choose the PHP version, which will be active for the account based on what your script apps require. You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for any of the versions that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this area, you'll be able to use a compact software tool which will allow you to control the php.ini file for your account and enable or disable PHP extensions through On and Off buttons, which means that you won't need any kind of previous knowledge as activating Zend Optimizer is as simple as clicking a button. More advanced users can do the same thing by adding a php.ini file with the necessary code in a particular domain folder. If you need any assistance to activate the tool, you're able to contact our technical support team at any time.
