Zend Optimizer is an instrument, which is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is employed to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of corporations which make paid script applications, so if you acquire such an application for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to change it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer often perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer can be found on our in-house made cloud platform and you will be able to use it whatever the cloud hosting package that you choose. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the accounts and it'll take you as little as a few clicks to do this.

Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application that needs Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, but in case you are not sure what you should do, you are able to contact our 24/7 technical support crew and they will activate the tool for you.
