Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, that's required to run files protected with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you wish to protect your custom script, for example, you are 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 website. Lots of pre-made script-driven apps, in particular ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to operate correctly because their core code is generally not free to modify. Internet sites which use the instrument are generally faster as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we provide and it takes only a few clicks to do that. After you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you should visit the PHP Configuration section where you can find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, so you will not have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we have also left the option for more experienced users to set both the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular website, but not for the hosting account as a whole.
