Numerous licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encrypted program code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the illegal usage of such apps. One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it's widely used as it can be used to modify any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encoded files to work effectively on a web server afterwards is when one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you wish to use any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's set up on the server where you will host your site. Also, websites which need the tool will perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are part of our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. No matter which shared hosting service you get, you will be able to activate the software tool so that any script application that needs it will function properly in your account. By using a handy software tool in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate various options with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first website hosting account ever, you will not encounter any troubles. In the exact same area you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, and each time you change 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 work with a couple of PHP releases simultaneously, more experienced users can activate the tool for a specific website 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 Linux semi-dedicated servers. It is available on our revolutionary cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven application which you'd like to use requires it to function, you just need to enable it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also switch the PHP release which your hosting account uses. For each and every new version which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used releases of PHP, which means that you won't have to do this each and every time. In the event that you have more experience, you are able to benefit from the versatility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file to set a different PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific domain without altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
