Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular application that is employed to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of companies which create paid script apps, so in case you obtain such an app for your site, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to alter it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer often perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we supply and it takes only a couple of clicks to do that. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to visit the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, therefore you do not need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP release for your account through the same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we have also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular site, but not for the website hosting account in general.
