Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you wish to protect your custom script, for example, you can take advantage of Zend Guard and your program 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 applications, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer to work effectively because their core code is usually not free to modify. Sites which use the tool are generally faster since their code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer is present on our custom cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the shared web hosting package that you choose.

Due to the fact that we support numerous versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you haven't used yet. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software tool, and you don't need any coding skills or previous expertise. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application that requires Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, but when you're unsure what you should do, you will be able to contact our 24/7 technical support team and they can enable the tool for you.
