Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is 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 purpose to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of corporations which make paid script applications, so in case you acquire such an app for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and make sure that your site visitors or customers will be unable to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.
Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting
When you buy a Linux website hosting through us, you will be able to select the PHP release, that will be active for the account based on what your script apps need. You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel for any of the versions that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this section, you can use a compact tool that will allow you to control the php.ini file for your account and enable or disable PHP extensions using On and Off buttons, therefore you will not need any kind of previous experience since enabling Zend Optimizer will be as simple as clicking a button. More advanced users will be able to do the same by placing a php.ini file with the necessary program code in a specific domain folder. If you need any help to activate the instrument, you'll be able to contact our technical support crew anytime.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do this. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should go to the PHP Configuration section where you will find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you will not have to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the very same section, you'll have to enable Zend for any new version that you use.

The file will have effect only for this particular site, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
