Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known app which is used to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of companies that create paid script applications, so if you purchase such an app for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer often perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom cloud platform and you'll be able to use it regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you select. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the accounts and it will take you just a few clicks to do that. Considering that we support a number of different releases 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 have to enable Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used yet. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click application, therefore you will not need any coding skills or previous expertise.
