Lots of licensed and some free script-driven applications have encoded program code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it's widespread due to the fact that it can be used to change all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encrypted files to work efficiently on a web server after that is when one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you wish to use any paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is set up on the server where you will host your website. In addition, websites which need the tool can perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available 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 from the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all of the accounts and it will take you just several clicks to do this. Because we support numerous releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to enable Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used yet. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software tool, so you won't need any kind of computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application that requires Zend Optimizer without any troubles, still when you are not sure how to proceed, you will be able to contact our 24/7 tech support team and they will enable the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages. It's installed on our innovative cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven app that you'd like to use requires it to work, you just have to enable it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also switch the PHP version that your web hosting account uses. For any new version which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used releases of PHP, which means that you will not have to do this each and every time. In case you have more experience, you're able to benefit from the flexibility 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 overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
