Numerous licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have protected program code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted use of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption instruments used for this specific 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 sole way for the protected files to run effectively on a web server afterwards is when one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. If you wish to employ any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it's installed on the server where you will host your site. In addition, websites which require the instrument generally perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers which are part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. No matter which web hosting package you choose, you will be able to use the instrument so that any script application that requires it will work properly as part of your account. Using a convenient software tool from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the web hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate different functions with a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first web hosting account ever, you won't have any difficulties. In the very same section you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, thus any time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform allows you to employ multiple PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can activate the instrument for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We offer Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. It is available on our avant-garde cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven app that you need to use requires it to work, you just need to activate it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also switch the PHP version that your website hosting account uses. For each new release which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used releases of PHP, therefore you will not have to do this every time. In the event that you have more experience, you are able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set another PHP version and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular domain name without the need of altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
