Numerous licensed and some free script-driven apps have protected program code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it is used widely as it can be used to modify all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encrypted files to run efficiently on a web server after that is if another tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In case you want to employ any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's set up on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, sites which require the tool usually perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our custom cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the cloud hosting package that you select. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the accounts and it will take you only a few clicks to do that. Considering that we support many different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you haven't used so far. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click tool, and you will not need any kind of programming skills or previous practical experience. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app that requires Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, yet if you are unsure what to do, you are able to contact our 24/7 tech support crew and they can enable the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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