Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known application that is used to encrypt 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 numerous corporations which make paid script applications, so when you obtain such an app for your website, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to change it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you just a few clicks to do this.
