Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that is required to run files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. In case you need to protect your custom-written script, for example, you can use Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Numerous pre-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to operate correctly since their core code is often not free to change. Sites that use the instrument are typically faster since their code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is present on our in-house made cloud platform and you will be able to use it regardless of the shared website hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all accounts and it will take you just a few clicks to do that. Because we support numerous versions 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 need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you haven't used so far. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software tool, and you don't need any kind of computer programming skills or previous experience. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app that requires Zend Optimizer without difficulties, but when you are not sure what you should do, you are able to contact our 24/7 tech support crew and they can enable the tool for you.
