Many licensed and some free script-driven applications have encoded code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it's used widely due to the fact that it can be used to modify any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encrypted files to run efficiently on a web server after that is if an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you would like to use any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, websites that require the instrument usually perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our tailor-made cloud platform and you'll be able to use it regardless of the shared website hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all accounts and it'll take you as little as a couple of clicks to do this. Since we support a number of different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to enable Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you haven't used so far. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click instrument, so you do not need any coding skills or previous practical experience. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without troubles, yet in case you're not sure what you should do, you are able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they can activate the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans. It's available on our avant-garde cloud platform, so if any script-driven app that you want to use requires it to work, you just need to enable it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also switch the PHP version that your website hosting account uses. For every new release which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia will remember your choice for previously used releases of PHP, so you will not need to do this every time. In the event that you have more experience, you're able to benefit from the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set a different PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific website without altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
