Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is employed to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of organizations which make paid script apps, so when you purchase such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. If you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to alter it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed more rapidly.

You can activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel for any of the releases that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this section, you're able to use a small tool which will allow you to handle the php.ini file for your account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions through On and Off buttons, so you will not need any previous knowledge since enabling Zend Optimizer will be as easy as clicking a button. More skilled users can do the same by adding a php.ini file with the necessary program code in a specific domain folder.
