Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that's required to execute 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 copyright protected source code. If you wish to protect your custom script, for example, you'll be able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Various ready-made script-driven apps, particularly ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to work effectively since their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Sites which use the tool are normally faster since their program code is already optimized and precompiled.
Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer is accessible on our in-house made cloud platform and you're able to use it regardless of the web hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the accounts and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do that. Since we support several different 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'll need to activate Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you have not used so far. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click tool, and you will not need any kind of computer programming skills or previous practical experience. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app that requires Zend Optimizer without difficulties, yet in case you're not sure what to do, you're able to contact our 24/7 tech support crew and they'll activate the instrument for you.
