Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized use, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you would like to protect your custom-made script, for example, you are able to employ Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Many pre-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to operate effectively because their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Internet sites which use the tool are often faster as their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

If you acquire a shared hosting from our company, you can pick the PHP release, which will be active for your account depending on what your script applications need. You can activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for all of the versions that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this section, you can take advantage of a small software tool which will allow you to control the php.ini file for the account and enable or disable PHP extensions using On and Off buttons, therefore you will not need any kind of previous experience as enabling Zend Optimizer is as simple as clicking a button.
