A lot of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unauthorized use of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's widespread since it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the protected files to work correctly on a web server afterwards is when a second tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you would like to employ any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's set up on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, websites which need the tool can perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers that are part of our innovative cloud website hosting platform. No matter which Linux cloud package you select, you can use the tool to guarantee that any script application which needs it will work perfectly within your account. Using a handy software tool in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate many different functions with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your first hosting account ever, you will not have any troubles. In the exact same section you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, thus any time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform allows you to work with multiple PHP releases at once, more advanced users can activate the tool for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated hosting. It's available on our cutting-edge cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven app which you want to use requires it to function, you just have to enable it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you can also switch the PHP version which your hosting account uses. For each and every new version which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia will remember your choice for previously used versions of PHP, so you will not need to do that each and every time. In case you have more experience, you'll be able to benefit from the versatility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular domain without altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
