Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you'd like to protect your custom-made script, for example, you can employ 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. Various pre-made script-driven applications, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to operate properly because their core code is often not free to change. Internet sites that use the instrument are typically faster as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

If you obtain a cloud web hosting plan
through our company, you have the option to pick the PHP version, that will be active for your account according to what your script applications need. You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for all of the versions that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this section, you're able to take advantage of a small software tool that will allow you to manage the php.ini file for your account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions through On and Off buttons, therefore you won't need any kind of previous knowledge since enabling Zend Optimizer will be as simple as clicking a button.
