Many licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have protected program code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the unauthorized use of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption instruments used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it's widely used since it can be used to modify any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encoded files to work correctly on a web server afterwards is when an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. If you'd like to work with any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. Also, websites which need the instrument generally perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our tailor-made cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the cloud website hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the accounts and it'll 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 need to activate Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you have not used yet. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click instrument, and you do not need any kind of programming skills or previous expertise. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app that requires Zend Optimizer with no troubles, but when you are not sure what you should do, you'll be able to contact our 24/7 technical support team and they'll enable the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We've installed Zend Optimizer on all of the servers which are a part of our innovative cloud hosting platform and due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you will be able to enable and take advantage of Zend for any script app which you would like to use with no more than a single click. You may also choose the PHP release which will be active for your account, so if you move to a new version, you just have to go to the Advanced section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it's as easy as that. If you switch the version back, Zend will already be active. More tech-savvy users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP release and to activate Zend Optimizer just for a single site by placing a php.ini file with the needed program code inside the corresponding domain folder.
