A lot of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such apps. One of the most popular encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is widespread because it can be used to modify any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encoded files to run correctly on a web server after that is when an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you wish to employ any paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. Also, websites that require the tool can perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are part of our advanced cloud web hosting platform. No matter which cloud website hosting you pick, you can take advantage of the tool to ensure that any kind of script application which needs it will function perfectly within your account. Using a handy tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate a variety of functions with a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you won't encounter any difficulties. In the exact same section you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, thus each time you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform enables you to work with multiple PHP versions at the same time, more experienced users can enable the tool for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated servers. It's installed on our revolutionary cloud platform, so if any script-driven application that you need to use requires it to work, you just need to enable it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also switch the PHP release that your website hosting account uses. For any new version which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used releases of PHP, so you won't need to do that each time. In case you have more experience, you'll be able to benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP version and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular domain without the need of altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
