Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is needed to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you wish to protect your custom-written script, for example, you will be able to use Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Numerous pre-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to work correctly as their core code is often not free to change. Sites that use the instrument are typically speedier because their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom-made cloud platform and you will be able to use it regardless of the shared hosting package that you choose. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all accounts and it will take you as little as a few clicks to do that.

This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software tool, and you do not need any kind of computer programming skills or previous practical experience. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application that requires Zend Optimizer without any difficulties, but when you're unsure what you should do, you're able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they can activate the tool for you.
