Numerous licensed and some free script-driven apps have encoded code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption software instruments used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it's very popular as it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encrypted files to run effectively on a web server after that is if an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. When you wish to work with any kind of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your site. Also, sites which require the tool tend to perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our custom-built cloud platform and you will be able to use it whatever the shared website hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all accounts and it will take you only several clicks to do that. Since we support a number of different releases 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 have not used yet. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click application, therefore you do not need any kind of programming skills or previous experience. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application that requires Zend Optimizer without troubles, still if you are not sure how to proceed, you'll be able to contact our 24/7 tech support crew and they will activate the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We provide Zend Optimizer with all our semi-dedicated servers. It is present on our avant-garde cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven app which you would like to use requires it to function, you just need to activate it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also switch the PHP release which your website hosting account uses. For each 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 versions of PHP, so you won't have to do that 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 use a php.ini file in order to set another PHP version and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular domain name without altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
