Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of corporations that develop paid script applications, so if you get such an app for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer is available on our in-house made cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the website hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all accounts and it will take you as little as a few clicks to do this.
