Many licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encrypted program code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's widely used since it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run efficiently on a web server subsequently is if one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. When you'd like to employ any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's set up on the server where you will host your website. In addition, websites which need the instrument will perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers which are part of our advanced cloud web hosting platform. No matter which Linux website hosting you choose, you can activate the software tool so that any kind of script app that needs it will work flawlessly within your account. Using a handy software instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate various settings with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your first web hosting account ever, you won't encounter any difficulties. In the very same section you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, thus any time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform enables you to take advantage of a couple of PHP versions at once, more experienced users can enable the tool for a specific 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 our semi-dedicated servers. It's available on our avant-garde cloud platform, so if any script-driven app which you would like to use requires it to work, you just have to enable it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also change the PHP version that your hosting account uses. For each and every new release which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used releases of PHP, therefore you won't have to do this each time. If you have more experience, you'll be able to benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular site without the need of altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
