A lot of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption tools used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it's widely used as it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the protected files to run the right way on a web server after that is if one more tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you would like to employ any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is set up on the server where you will host your site. In addition, websites which require the instrument can perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer can be found on our in-house built cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the cloud web hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the accounts and it will take you only a few clicks to do that. Because we support numerous versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to enable Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you have not used yet. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software tool, therefore you do not need any computer programming skills or previous experience. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer without difficulties, yet when you are not sure what you should do, you'll be able to contact our 24/7 tech support crew and they will enable the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We offer Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages. It is available on our avant-garde cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application which you need to use requires it to function, you just need to enable it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also change the PHP version that your hosting account uses. For each new version 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, therefore you won't have to do that each time. In the event that you have more experience, you're able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific website without altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
