Lots of licensed and some free script-driven apps have encrypted program code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the not authorized use of such apps. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it's very popular because it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encoded files to work the right way on a web server subsequently is if an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. If you would like to use any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, sites that need the tool usually perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are a part of our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which shared website hosting plan you obtain, you can take advantage of the tool to ensure that any script application which requires it will operate flawlessly within your account. Using a convenient tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate various settings with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you will not encounter any issues. In the exact same area you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, thus whenever you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Because our platform enables you to employ a couple of PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can activate the instrument for a particular website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans. It is present on our innovative cloud platform, so if any script-driven application that you need to use requires it to function, you just have to activate it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also switch the PHP release that your web hosting account uses. For every new release that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used versions of PHP, so you will not have to do this every time. In the event that you have more experience, you'll be able to take advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set another PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
