Learn what exactly Zend Optimizer is and also how it can change the entire performance of a PHP app.
Zend Optimizer is a popular software, that is needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encrypts files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you'd like to protect your custom script, for example, you're able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Countless ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to function correctly since their core code is ordinarily not free to change. Websites which use the instrument are usually quicker as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer is present on our custom-made cloud platform and you can use it whatever the cloud hosting

Considering that we support numerous releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to enable Zend Optimizer every time you switch 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 disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click tool, so you do not need any kind of computer programming skills or previous practical experience. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer without any troubles, but if you are unsure what you should do, you'll be able to contact our 24/7 tech support team and they will activate the tool for you.
